Hope in a Cup

tea service

Drink your tea slowly and reverently, as if it is the axis on which the world earth revolves – slowly, evenly, without rushing toward the future. Live the actual moment. Only this moment is life. — Thich Nhat Hahn

Using the age old tradition of tea pouring and tasting to sooth spirits and open hearts, we’ll come together to pause and reflect on all the signs of hope in our lives and in the world.

There will be time for quiet contemplation woven in between Rebecca’s sharing different teas and stories about the gifts found in the pouring, tasting, and savoring of tea that she learned while spending a year in China.

Come, step away from the chaos in the world to pause and experience the holy…within a cup of tea shared in community.
