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.
FACILITATOR: Pastoral Associate at the Lutheran Campus Ministries at the University of Texas and Program Committee Chair for Eremos, Rebecca Guengerich has a passion for helping individuals of all ages discern how to honor their faith in relationship to their vocational calling. Her experience as a spiritual director and a transformative year living in China—that included learning a deep reverence for the gifts of immersing oneself in the art of tea pouring and tasting—also influence her work.
