Save the date: A Gathering of communities on December 21
The night will include a progressive journey through a candle-lit house, engaging in various traditions and ways of celebrating God With Us.
Place: 299 E. 13
9th Street, the Bronx. One block from 3rd Ave./138th Street stop on the 6 train
Date/Time: Wednesday December 21, 7-9:30 pm
What to expect
Each room of the the house will offer a unique way to engage, from art and music to contemplation and tradition. Expect to journey and engage in small groups as you move from room to room, then to have a time of pot-luck foods, celebration and getting to know each other at a central room at the end. Expect to meet people from living-together communities and worshipping communities around the city, as well as with our friends and neighbors in the South Bronx.
How to participate
Bring a pot-luck dish if you can. Come as a community, as a family, or as an individual. Bring friends! An RSVP by Dec. 19 would be helpful. I’ll send out one more reminder closer to the date.
How to contribute
We would like the 4 to 7 rooms to be facilitated by folks from different communities, nationalities and traditions! A room might include:
- Christmas traditions and foods from a particular country or culture, or
- worship through the creation of art or music, or
- contemplative writings, lyrics or images, or
- a provocative and challenging engagement around issues of justice and brotherly love
If you, or your community, are willing to facilitate a room, please email transmissionchurch [at] gmail by December 7.
