Abundance: Community Potluck

Members of our extended United Theological Seminary community, let’s EAT!           

When: Sundays 5:30-7:30pm

Where: United Theological Seminary [767 N Eustis St #140, St Paul, MN 55114]

Schedule and parking details below!

You are invited to join us Sunday evenings to experience the sacred through community potlucks!                

Join your hosts, Bridgette Weber and Grace Riggs for an in-person gathering at United that upholds diversity, strong community bonds, and the interconnectedness of life. One way we imagined creating this is by centering our ritual around something we all share: food and stories. We see how food touches all relationships in life, from our bodies to soil to each other. Thus, our hope is that through centering food as sacred, we remember how to engage in regenerative relationships across the board and view meal times as holy conversations capable of igniting delicious and beautiful change in the world.

What to Expect: 

We welcome folks from any and all religious, spiritual or secular identities and backgrounds.

Bring your full self! Your unique personality and expressions make it richer, just like your dish! We recognize that everyone is a mixture of gifts, talents, and wounds.  Show up wherever you are.
