20th Anniversary Celebration Luncheon
Widening the Circle
The Reverend Betty Adam
The Very Rev. Cynthia Kittredge
The Briar Club, 2603 Timmons Lane, Houston, TX 77027
The circle is an ancient and powerful symbol of wholeness, completion, protection, and community. It figures largely in Celtic lore and art, along with St. Brigid, our namesake. Please join us as we celebrate the work of Brigid’s Place and honor its founder, the Rev. Betty Adam, while sharing our vision for “widening the circle” of our community.
Brigid’s Place was founded on the desire of Betty Adam to create a safe community in which women (and sometimes men) would be free to explore their spirituality. Over its 20 year history, it has been a light and a treasure to the city of Houston, offering hundreds of programs to thousands of individuals. Focusing on education, celebration, and dialogue, Brigid’s Place began as a small ripple with the widening invitation to come and be a part of this dynamic community. Programming has been wide and varied, with offerings as diverse as centering prayer, creative writing, interfaith conferences, feast day celebrations of Brigid, Mary, and Mary Magdalene, SoulCollage®, and the ongoing Anam Cara group. The Brigid’s Place community has been the incubator for books, poetry, art, new groups, and important scholarship.
