2023 AE Online Spirituality Center – “Grace Garden”

During this year’s Annual Event, explore the digital oasis of “Grace Garden” to lament the world’s losses, past and present as we explore this year’s conference theme, Unforced Rhythms of Grace, as well as Birmingham’s significant historical events.

Gardens offer space to reflect, plant, uproot and nourish in the hope of producing quality fruit; this is true for both our physical and spiritual lives. You will be able to use the interactive, virtual center as an aid in grief, as we journey together through cumulative loss, rest, and grace.

The Online Spirituality Center is being created and designed by Chassidy Goggins, a student at Columbia Theological Seminary. Chassidy is collaborating with the 2023 APCE Annual Event artist, Mary Button, to use some of Mary’s work as a source of inspiration and meditation in the online spirituality center.
