On Campus Events
It’s really hard to be on Zoom all the time, so we’ve decided that for this school year, we’re going to try to safely gather on campus when it makes sense to do so. Keep scrolling to learn about each of our on-campus events and how we’re keeping them safe.
Normally we’d meet at the Starbucks in the SAC or the Union to grab coffee, but we feel safer gathering outdoors only, especially if we need to be unmasked while drinking down our fifth coffee of the day. So this semester, we’re going to pack a cooler full of drinks and find a nice spot on campus to camp out while we catch up. If the weather’s bad, we’ll gather in the Lounge instead.
Meet outside the lounge door (101 W. 21st Street) at 5 p.m. on Thursdays, starting August 27.
After Happy Hour, we’ll move to the lounge (or maybe stay where we are if it’s a beautiful day!) to do a seated meditation together. You don’t have to have any experience meditating – we’re a beginner-friendly group. Rene will lead us in meditation, and we’ll make sure to send out the audio on our Discord server in case you aren’t comfortable meeting in person but want to join in.
After Happy Hour at 6 p.m. on Thursdays, starting August 27.
Labyrinth in the Wild
Whenever the weather is nice, we like to take our giant rainbow canvas labyrinth somewhere on campus for anyone to walk. A minister will be at the labyrinth in case you want to chat about anything, whether you’re a Labyrinth student or not. We don’t have a set schedule since the weather needs to be nice all day, but check our social media and the announcements page for updates!
We are making plans to worship outside every other week starting September 6. (The other weeks we will be on Zoom as we have been since March.) A specific location is still being secured, but worship will definitely be on Sunday evenings at 6 p.m. Masks will be required even while outdoors, though to be more clearly understood by people who rely on lip reading, anyone speaking for a significant length of time may remove their mask. We will sit 6 feet apart except for those who live together, and we will incorporate music in ways other than group singing. This plan will be constantly reevaluated and tweaked as new information and new experiences change how we gather. If you have any feedback, please don’t hesitate to email Anna or Rene.
