Transgender day of remembrance

Wednesday, November 20 at 8pm

 International Transgender Day of Remembrance (TDOR) was started in 1999 by transgender advocate Gwendolyn Ann Smith as a vigil to honor the memory of Rita Hester, a transgender woman who was killed in 1998.
The vigil commemorates all the transgender people lost to violence since Rita Hester's death, and began an important tradition that has become the annual Transgender Day of Remembrance.
Green Street will observe Transgender Day of Remembrance with an evening service  and it will include a reading of names and candle-lighting vigil.

Spiritual Practice Suggestions from Rev. Kristin L. White

Rev. Kristin L. White

Prayer & Community

Whether we live in the heart of a city, a suburban neighborhood, or the rural countryside, we all live in a community. Our lives intertwine with other people and organizations.  The following suggestions are ways to be spiritually connected with our communities, every day and anywhere.

Prayer Walks

Walk through your neighborhood or community with an open, prayerful heart. What celebrations and needs do you see? Who are the people you encounter? Pray for those you pass.

Community Prayer Maps

Get a map of your community. Every day, choose a place on the map - a street, a neighborhood, a home, a business, or a public place - and spend time praying for the people and activities in that location.

Community Meetings

Whenever your community has a town hall  or city council meeting, devote time beforehand to pray for the meeting, for wisdom and compassion for all involved, and for the well-being of the community to be the result.

Community Service - Part I

What community service programs are in your town? Make a list and each week, choose one to be the focus of your prayers.

Community Service - Part II

Contact one of the community service programs in your town. Ask for ways you could help - collecting food for the food pantry, supplies for the shelter, etc. - and   Put your prayers into action.

Disciple and Transformation

Discipleship

To learn and grow in the way of love, to be forgiven and in relationship with God, and to practice the way of love and forgiveness daily.

Transformation

When living in love, forgiveness and relationship with God completely changes the world.

Knitted Together In Love

image49

Green Street Prayer Squares and Prayer Shawls have been shared with visitors, sent to friends in the hospital, given out in airports, and offered to those looking for a piece of hope to hold onto.  Prayer Squares and Shawls are knitted by the Prayer Shawl Ministry Team, who pray for the persons who will ultimately receive them.  Squares are knitted in a rainbow of colors and each one has a cross in the middle.  If you would like to receive one, or know someone who would, contact the church!
