Our names often mature along with us. And that is happening with the Spirit Workshops.
As the leadership group talked together about how to describe our work, the phrase “Gathering Ground” came up. We paused. “That’s really it,” someone said. It made sense more quickly to the people we tried it out on. After several months of discernment, we are moving to make this our name for the next phase of growing up.
In September, you will begin to see it in our announcements, with a new logo and independent website.
I still answer to “Bethie”. We will do our best to be sure that folks looking for Spirit Workshops will easily be able to find Gathering Ground. We are excited to be even more inviting to people of many beliefs who seek to gather, learn, and act together, grounded in the mystery of a greater good.
