    Vulnerability as Spiritual Practice
    Holly Mueller
    Vulnerability is a crucial part of forming community and allowing ourselves to be accepted by others, but it is not an act that happens by accident. Vulnerability is a spiritual practice we must put effort into, taking the leap of faith sharing openly with others, relying on people besides ourselves, trusting that those around us are able to meet us as we are.

    You Must Be Present to Win: Why Coming out of Hiding in the First/Last Step of Spiritual Living
    Rabbi Rami Shapiro

    The first question God poses to Adam and Eve in the Garden of Eden is this, “Where are you?” The same question is posed to each of us at every moment: Where are you? Where are you in your life, in your ability to respond to self and others, in your capacity to respond to God? Rabbi Rami will lead us into this question and how we might respond to it.
