Holiday Season at CL

We at Contemplate Lincoln have a lot to be thankful for as we enter into the holiday season. We have been blessed by the support and presence of so many beautiful souls in our under two years in service to Lincoln. We have been blessed to host webcasts with Richard Rohr and Paul Smith right here in Lincoln. Teach and provide space for transformative contemplative practices. Worship and grow in worship services and sacred Saturdays. Gather and deliver much needed supplies to flood victims. Host gatherings, weddings, celebration of life ceremonies, and neighborhood association meetings. Such blessings indeed and we have more to come this Advent season and in the New Year. Join us at Contemplate Lincoln this Advent and join us in mission through your support.

We need your support to continue our work and to grow into what spirit is calling us to be. There are many ways to support Contemplate Lincoln this Holiday Season.
