Together on April 9th: A Virtual Vigil

Hosted by Reimagine

Join us to honor the dead, those who are sick, and all of us on the planet. For this free virtual event on Zoom, please bring a candle and invite any friends or loved ones who would like to participate. During the vigil, we will hear reflections from some of the most thoughtful spiritual leaders in the country, including Rabbi Sydney Mintz and Reverend Corey Kennard, and we will take in the powerful work of Earth Artist Day Schildkret and music by Amber Field.

Tonight’s vigil will be co-created by all those joining with candles on Zoom. It will also feature earth art from Day Schildkret of Morning Altars, music by Amber Field, contributions from health-care advocate and author Katy Butler, and reflections from some of the world’s most inspiring spiritual leaders—Rabbi Sydney Mintz of Congregation Emanu-El in San Francisco and Reverend Corey Kennard, Pastor of Amplify Christian Church in Detroit.

If you can, please show up with a candle to honor those we've lost and those that are suffering during this difficult time. Our hope is for this invitation to become a monthly occurrence, helping spark other rituals and fostering a deeper sense of togetherness in the face of what is both separating and connecting us all.
