Upcoming Services

Sunday March 18, 2018

March 18: Widening the Circle: Gifts of Community in the Chaos of the Hospital It’s human nature to choose our community in a limited way—restricting our engagement to those we feel safe with, those who reinforce our beliefs or biases. But some places are great equalizers in that they bring people together from all walks of life who otherwise might never cross paths. A hospital is one of those places, and a chaplain, whose task is to meet people where they are without any direct agenda, is in a unique position to cross boundaries. Melanie Childers reflects on the gifts and challenges of “drawing the circle wide” to establish meaningful connections with all kinds of people.

March 25: Can You Blessed Be? We use this phrase as a salutation or exclamation but how would life be if we thought of it as a dance, like the tango? Imagine going through your daily life dropping a blessing here and there to the check-out person at the grocery store or the busy neighbor on the other side of the fence. Join Byron Ballard for an exploration of this ancient circle dance and discover the deeper meaning in your own complicated life. H. Byron Ballard, MFA, BA, is a western NC native, teacher, folklorist and writer. She is senior priestess and co-founder of Mother Grove Goddess Temple in Asheville, NC. She is in Boone as a guest of the Pagan Student Association at ASU.
