Erin Patrick – Love the People In Front Of You



Join us for a conversation with Erin Patrick of the Road in Syracuse, NY as she shares her journey from staffing a fast-food drive thru to gathering three unlikely groups of people together into one powerful spiritual community. Hear her describe how she befriended those who are homeless, those who are elderly, and those who are differently abled, and how she taught them to befriend each other; why education and certification don’t matter as much as you might think they should, and why following Jesus is as simple as loving the people that God puts in front of you.

Rebecca Priest and Chris Jewell – Mobile Meditation



Join us for a conversation with Rebecca Priest and Chris Jewell of Into Silence, a mobile meditation space that partners with businesses, non-profits, and churches to provide an on-site way for their members to learn how to enter into silence as part of their everyday practice. Hear them share about Rebecca’s first experience of centering prayer, how silence forms community, the mechanics of trailer renovation, the importance of trust when trying something new, and how providing people with a space to practice mindfulness can prove transformational for them and the organizations they are connected with.

Into Silence is sponsored by the Upper New York Annual Conference of the United Methodist Church; and we’ll be talking to their spiritual pioneers throughout this next month.

Darlene Hutto – Vocation Unbound



Join us for a conversation with Darlene Hutto, Director of Strategic Initiatives for Leadership Networks for the Forum for Theological Exploration, as she talks about discovering vocation on the margins. Hear her talk about her work sparking young people’s spiritual imagination as they consider vocation and the factors that influence how young people receive and respond to call.

In particular, listen to Darlene share about how race, class, and age are all bound up in the experience of vocation, how call itself is an expression of privilege, how mainline religious institutions center whiteness as they cultivate vocation, and what cultural shifts organizations need to make in order to help everyone step into their own vocation for their lives.
