These are the words that I use to describe the last month I have spent with 4 other incredible people. We have shared deeply. We have listened deeply. We have intentionally shared sacred moments together in community. We have trusted one another, and perhaps ourselves, too!
The Inclusive Life Fellowship team will soon begin our 2nd Sacred Circle Group. The thought is these groups will meet for two hours every other week, using guided directions for each gathering, that will allow the group to journey together.
It is our experience, and belief that smaller groups work better for some people. Some people are lost in big crowds. If you have a “place” or group, or community that feeds your spirituality, that nurtures your soul, and that allows you to remain connected to what you feel/know as sacred, good for you.
If you don’t consider what it would be like to spend about two hours twice each month to gather with other like-minded people who are interested in a Sacred Circle. We hope to share the fullness, intimacy, and belonging in these smaller non-church groups.
If you would like to learn more, email or message me. We will help start new groups when there are at least 5 are ready to gather (we like to keep them less than 10.)
QUESTIONS YOU MAY HAVE…
Q. Why be a part of a small group or Sacred Circle?
A. Small groups offer greater intimacy, some may say a safer environment to connect with others, in a deeper, more meaningful way.
Q. Is this just another church or ministry group?
A. No. It is not church. It is not a ministry group. It does not include dogma, or require anyone to belong to any church. It is a simply a small group of like-minded people, gathering in a smaller group, using guided directions for each gathering to help the group move along.
Q. What is the size of each group?
A. 6 is a great number, and some groups may have 8-10. Ideally each group will be under 10, and it will be up to each group to be flexible.
Q. What is the cost and commitment?
A. There is no cost to participate. There is a book we will use that runs around $14. Free will donations will be used to offset costs for those who need a book provided. The commitment is showing up every other week for about two hours. Each group will determine the meeting day and time.
Q. Where are these gatherings held?
YOU CAN HELP WITH A MONTHLY DONATION
A. Generally at the Inclusive Life Center (96th and J.) However, each group my end up choosing to meet at a location, day, and time of their choosing.
We Are Better Together
Inclusive Life Fellowship is a community of seekers who come together to celebrate life by
nurturing each others spirit, mind, and body, and by honoring each persons definition of the Sacred,
so that we as a community, are empowered to share our light with the world.
Think About This
“I need you. You need me. I won’t harm you with words from my mouth. I love you. I need you to survive…” Our world is so hungry for the truth of these words. It does not matter your race, your sexual orientation, your gender identity, if you have children or a family, or not. What matters is that we all have a community, a place, a space to gather in, so we can work together, and to help each other get through life.
We are rich people, some even have money. We are runners, walkers, swimmers, and those that wish they did. We are people who sing out loud and proud, and some even sound good. We are people who are young, and young at heart.
You’re welcome here if you’re “just browsing,” just woke up, just got out of jail, or just got lost, and found your way here by mistake. We don’t care if you’re more Catholic than the Pope Francis, or haven’t gathered in a community for weeks, months or years.
We welcome sport moms, NASCAR dads, starving artists, tree-huggers, latte-sippers, vegetarians, and junk-food eaters. We welcome those who are in recovery or still addicted. We welcome you if you’re having problems or you’re down in the dumps or if you don’t like organized religion, or who have had religion shoved down your throat.
If you blew all your cash at the dog track, you’re welcome here. We offer a special welcome to those who think the earth is flat, work too hard, don’t work, can’t spell, or because the grandparents are in town and needed to go to a church.
We welcome those who are inked, pierced or both. We offer a special welcome to those who could use a hug, or prayer right now (or both), we welcome tourists, seekers and doubters, and we welcome you. As you are.
