Meditation for When the World Is Falling Apart
This meditation was offered to the Still Forming community in the aftermath of a week that included the deaths of Alton Sterling, Philando Castile, and five Dallas police officers.
These events followed weeks of headlines that included Brexit, a bombing in Baghdad that killed more than 200 people, an attack at the Istanbul airport, and the Orlando Pulse shooting that killed 49 people in the LGBTQ community.
Those events came on top of the already difficult realities in our world that include the terror of ISIS, the Syrian refugee crisis, ongoing mass shootings, and racial pain.
No matter what prompted your finding this meditation or at what point in time you are listening to it, you are welcome to listen to it, download it, and share it with others as a moment of space and solace for the soul.
STILL FORMING FOUNDATIONS
In the spring and early summer of 2016, we walked through a series called Still Forming Foundations — a 10-part exploration of what we've found to be essential pieces of the spiritual journey. This series helped our community establish a common language and grounding as we continue moving forward in ongoing growth together.
You are welcome to learn from the series, as well! And you can connect with the community directly by requesting to join our private Facebook group. We'd love to have you with us.

The Traveler's Pack resource
During the season of Lent 2016, our community journeyed through a resource called the Traveler's Pack, which helped us discern and respond to God's personal invitation for growth in the current season of our lives. The 37-page PDF was accompanied by six weeks of recorded conversations around each phase of the workbook process. You are welcome to access those resources here.
