East End Cemetery

On Saturday, December 8th @ 10:00 a.m.-12:00 p.m, the St. Paul’s Youngish Adults will be participating in the East End Cemetery Clean Up. This event was coordinated by Chris Graham.

The East End Cemetery is “the final resting place of an estimated 13,000 people, among them some of the most prominent black Richmonders of the turn of the 20th century.” However, due to “decades of neglect,” many of their graves have become obfuscated by trash, weeds, and other refuse. To learn more about East End, please click here.

You can make a difference, like the small bands of committed volunteers who have begun cleaning up the cemetery, by joining us for a few hours to untangle vines and uncover valuable Richmond history! Plus, stay afterwards to go and get some pizza and/or a beverage with us at Triple Crossing in Fulton!

Where:
Rev. Molly's house

Want to read a book while asking deep questions about the world? Want to spend a little time doing spiritual practices in community? This group is for you. Each week, we will read a chapter of Madeleine L’Engle’s A Wrinkle in Time with a central theme in mind, one that draws out deeper conversation and reflection while staying grounded in the text.

We will be reading the book as we might read a sacred text like the Bible or the Koran, employing themes and deep discussion to use the book as a lens for our lives. We will end the group by doing a spiritual practice in community.

The group will meet Wednesdays: 11/14, 11/28, 12/5, and 12/12. Come at 6:30 pm for a little food, 7 pm sharp for book discussion. We will wrap up by 8:15 pm.

Discussions will be held at Rev. Molly’s house. Books are available for purchase ($5) in Molly’s office. Please let Molly know you are coming by sending her a message here.

Hope to see you there!

From Whom Has Our Wellbeing Come?

Dear Friends, The words of next Sunday’s gospel will seem disconnected from our own experience of life. Despite ourselves, we are already responding to prospects of Christmas, warm fires on dark nights, Christmas gift lists, and good food. Meanwhile, Jesus predicts the destruction of the temple in Jerusalem. What is all his talk of “wars […]
