Show Notes

What impact has COVID-19 had on your community’s rituals and rites of passage? The Rev. Sue Phillips, an ordained minister and co-founder of the Sacred Design Lab, helps us imagine the disruptions of 2020 to be both limiting and expanding for our imaginations. Listen how leaders are called to reflect on what is essential, and to do the work of meaning-making inside of these new constraints. Hear how the Rev. Dr. Kenda Creasy Dean engages the Church’s imagination, calling ministry leaders to choreograph new rituals and rites of passage in a year when we have all become innovators, joined by Springtide Research Institute’s Marte Aboagye grounding rites of passage in the lived experience of young people, and deepens our understanding of what young people need as we cultivate rites of passage both for, and alongside them.
