Fault Lines: The Danger and the Potential of the Broken PlacesMeredith McNabb
9:00-10:30 a.m. – Martin Chapel

Kintsugi (or kintsukuroi) is a Japanese method for repairing broken ceramics with a special lacquer mixed with gold, silver, or platinum. The philosophy behind the technique is to recognize the history of the object and to visibly incorporate the repair into the new piece instead of disguising it. The process usually results in something more beautiful than the original.  Meredith’s presentation will use this motif as a guiding image as we explore both the goodness and the shadows in the broken spots in our lives and in our communities.

Women in Ministry Luncheon

Sending Worship
3:45 – 5:00 p.m. – Martin Chapel

The SLT Worship Team invites us to a time of gathered worship. We will reflect on lessons learned, challenges embraced, and inspiration gained, as we return to our places of life, work, and ministry.
