Parents' Circle with Mother Morgan

Thursdays, July 16-August 20, 8pm to 8:45pm

Join us this summer for Parents' Circle - a reading group focused on parenting and faith! We will be reading the fantastic book Parenting From The Inside Out: How A Deeper Self-Understanding Can Help You Raise Children Who Thrive by Daniel Siegel and Mary Hatzell. While this book is focused on the practical dimensions of developmental neuroscience, we will use the readings as a springboard to explore our parenthood holistically, exploring how we are (and who we are becoming!) influences our parenting. We will host six sessions that cover the following topics:

July 16: Remembering and Seeing
July 23: Feeling and Telling
July 30: Connecting
August 6: Storytelling
August 13: Repairing Ruptures
August 20: Reflecting with Compassion and Faith

Our reading group runs from Thursday, July 16-Thursday, August 20, 2020 from 8:00-8:45 PM (ending in time to get to Compline). Register on Realm or by clicking here.

Telling the Truth Starts with You

Conversations about race are happening everywhere, and by now, I'm sure that you have had some interesting conversations at your house too. Intentionally talking to kids about race is important, but you've probably figured out that having these conversations with kids of different ages can be a challenge. Read more by clicking here

Courage Over Comfort

If there could be a theme to the conversations I've had with people this week, it's that talking about race is uncomfortable. For everyone. And we are discovering that as a community and as a people of faith, that if we are truly committed to racial justice (especially those of us who are white), we cannot be deterred by fear, guilt, or plain old awkwardness.

Confirmation

Confirmation is an important milestone in our spiritual lives as followers of Jesus Christ in The Episcopal Church. Young adults ages 13-16 are encouraged to discern their readiness for engaging the Catechumenate, a year-long engagement with Holy Scripture and the Episcopal tradition through study, prayer, and fellowship.

Young adults interested in applying for entrance to the Catechumenate are invited to write a formal letter of intention and to schedule a meeting with clergy as well as parents to discuss the process.

To begin the process of discerning for the Catechumenate, please contact Rev. Morgan Mercer Ladd at mladd@incarnationgc.org.
