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.

Emmaus helped me laugh again, and it brought joy back to my life after the loss of my child. I am now stronger than ever in my walk with the Lord. And to this day, I continue to sponsor pilgrims to The Walk to Emmaus. In my local church, I have led our discipleship team and have had the opportunity to start new Sunday school classes and various women’s ministries. ¡De Colores!”
