Spiritual Grounding
Spiritual Centering

We are called by our faith and our conscience to act for justice and compassion. As the long arc of the universe bends towards justice, it is our spiritual and moral center that keeps us grounded. Here, you will find wellsprings of hope, inspirational words and stories, and prayers and meditations to carry with you on the journey. Together we can create sanctuaries of safe spaces for those under threat, drawing strength from our ancestors and hope from our vision of beloved community.
