“From the Center” is a monthly email newsletter from The Upper Room that provides you with resources for your soul care as a spiritual leader.
The Upper Room, like the church, yearns to meet people where they are. Some of us hope there is grounding beneath all these shifting sands of our world and culture. Some of us wonder if there is a safe place to be vulnerable. Some of us want to develop the empathy that supports our call to action and justice.
The staff and community of The Upper Room are experiencing the challenges of leading in a world that no longer turns to the church as authority or guide. We are hearing a call to walk alongside those who are wounded in our world. We look forward to our journey together toward being a new kind of people.

"Thank you for the creative teams [of The Upper Room] who are working together to share the power of prayer around the world. You have collaborated with everyone working from our homes to share the gifts of hope, love, grace, and peace." (Written in response to The Upper Room COVID-19 response efforts).
