The Greater Good

This year, instead of monthly themes, we’re experimenting with another kind of rhythm, slowing down the monthly turnover and placing ourselves into the natural world around us. These thematic seasons center our biggest communal celebrations and are longer—seven weeks each—allowing us to delve more deeply. While the weather in Rochester can be unpredictable, we hope that this way of grounding our collective spiritual lives with the turning of the year will weave us ever more tightly into the fabric of interdependence.
