  1. Beginning Oct. 25 through Nov. 15, Social and Ecological Justice Huron is offering a book study to further explore the themes of the Rev'd Canon Stephanie Spellers' book "The Church Cracked Open: Disruption, Decline, and New Hope for Beloved Community". This is a great opportunity to dive more deeply into the relationship between the church and colonization, and explore ways to embody Beloved Community. This study will be offered Monday evenings at 7pm via Zoom and will provide reflection and engagement ahead of the visit from Stephanie Spellers on Nov. 22-23.

  2. Advent Church Cracked Open: Engaging the Journey
    As we move into that time when we are tempted to post reminders that ‘Jesus is the reason for the season’, Social and Ecological Justice Huron is offering an Advent study that draws from the discussion of the “Way of Love: seven practices for Jesus-centered life” as this is described in Stephanie Spellers’ “The Church Cracked Open: Disruption, Decline, and new Hope for Beloved Community”. Each week, this resource will invite participants to reflect on some of the practices for Jesus-centered life through the lens of the Gospel story and activities in the Diocese of Huron. This program is designed with flexibility in mind allowing it to be used independently, and as an online and/or in person program within congregations, deaneries, or other groups. We hope that all who engage find this journey meaningful.
