About Us

Peace Craft is an initiative of Sts Luke & James Episcopal Church—an open and affirming congregation—where we practice an inclusive and loving faith grounded in our heritage of Christian spiritual practices, including healing prayer, theological inquiry, and welcoming our neighbor.

Upcoming Activities

Peace Craft Labyrinth Workshop: POSTPONED
(Due to the COVID-19 pandemic, we've temporarily postponed this workshop. Look for it once we're together again.) Peace Craft will host a workshop about labyrinths, led by nationally renowned labyrinth expert, Lisa Gidlow Moriarty. We will also host opportunities for parishioners to walk the newly installed labyrinth in our worship space. If you’re interested in using a small labyrinth during worship, resources can be found in our Pray Ground.

Vocation Workshop
“Finding and Doing the Work of Your Heart”

Do you yearn for work that nourishes not only your finances but your spirit, community, and the world? Join Laura Packer for a FREE, one day workshop to learn how nourishing work is not only possible, but doable when you discover and pursue the work of your heart, called right livelihood.

Participants will identify their calling, and shape a plan to pursue it with steps for research, acceptability, and collaboration. Through writing, brainstorming, listening, and visualization exercises, we will explore the work that best uses your gifts to serve your community, creating a more fulfilled life in tandem with building a better world. Bring your lunch and preferred writing materials.

Laura Packer helps people and organizations find their stories, hone their vision, and use their voices to make the world a better place. She is the author of From Audience to Zeal: The ABCs of Finding, Crafting, and Telling a Great Story and is the co-facilitator of the Transformative Language Arts Right Livelihood training. www.laurapacker.com
