Hi Jon,
I recieved the link to your essay today. I am the person who, along with Susan and Sarah, put together the Reconciliation service at SPC that you mention in your article. I am a member of SPC and sing in the choir there. The 'sand painting' exercise and 'fire ceremony' exercise come from my spiritual practice of Shamanism. I am delighted that they touched you. Thanks for writing so eloquently about your experience. - Anne


Anne, thanks so much for your kind words. The service seemed like a risk -- anytime you ask people to get up and out of the pew it's a risk -- but was well worth it in my view. I'd love to learn more about Shamanism; are there books/resources you'd recommend? Look forward to seeing you soon at South Church. Jon
