9 a.m. | Check-in, Coffee, and Conversation

10 a.m. | SESSION ONE: The Digital and Divine

The doctrine of the incarnation often grounds our commitment to in-person or “real life” communities -- especially if we think of virtual or digital life as disembodied or immaterial. What if, instead of seeing the real vs. digital divide in terms of embodied vs. disembodied, we think about digital technology informing our lives in particular ways we are embodied? In this session, we explore who we are, how we live, and the intersectionality of the digital and divine. (YouTube Channel:, direct link:

10:40 a.m. | SESSION TWO: Wandering the Wilderness

Much like Moses and the Israelites, we’re living in a prolonged time of transition and unknown. The twenty-first century has introduced changes in our society and technology. Sometimes, we look back at days gone by and long for the “good old days.” What lessons can we learn from the wilderness? (Scripture focus: Numbers 11:4-6, 10-15.) (YouTube Channel:; Direct Link:

11:20 a.m. | SESSION THREE: Living in Liminality

In this interactive and reflective session, we speak to the present moment in our world. Acknowledging the reality of the ongoing pandemic, we take time to lament and examine the impact it has had on our physical, emotional, and spiritual lives. (YouTube Channel:; Direct Link:
