Here’s some events that are coming up. We have a living, active community that hosts and puts on numerous events, ranging from compassionate to entertaining. Scroll below to check out what’s coming up.
Second Half of Life Day Retreat
2007 Frankford Ave.
Philadelphia, PA 19125
Many people see the second half of life as largely about getting old, dealing with health issues, and letting go of life. Not us. What looks like falling apart as we age and falling down as we fail can largely be experienced as “falling upward.” That’s part of what we will explore together as we invite 40somethings and older to consider how to go deep in the latter half of their life. The cost is $10.
Free Baby & Kids Goods eXchange
2212 S. Broad St.
Philadelphia, PA 19125
We hope to bring our communities together to share resources and get necessary kid/baby stuff to families that need them. This is always a free event. Bring items to share if you can, but don’t stay away if you have nothing to share.
Old Testament Overview Day
3800 Marlton Pike
Pennsauken, Twp 08110
Ben White and Jonny Rashid host our annual review of the Old Testament in the Bible. It will have enough stimulation for people who have some knowledge already, but is especially designed for people who need to get the basics down. The day is designed to have the feeling of a retreat, not just a class. Free! But you must sign up by February 11 to come. $5 donation for simple lunch if you don’t bring your own.
One of the great things about this inaugural day of Lent is that the ceremony came to include wearing ashes. There are many levels to the symbol. You can enter it on whatever level you choose and give it the meaning it needs to have for you. But it mainly has the two movements of the truest story: 1) It is about grieving the distance between you and God. 2) It is about waking up to the closeness of Christ in letting his light shine on you.

Move Through the Pain
1125 S. Broad St.
