The Upper Room is here for you in these anxious times. Click Here

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.

Our resolve must be different. My prayer is that we have finally reached a tipping point. My hope is that when the protests fade and the marches slow that our will as a church to truly eradicate the scourge of racism won’t dissipate but grows even stronger.” View a growing list of resources for the spiritual work of overcoming racism.
