50-hour prayer vigil in honor of 50th Anniversary of Shalem Institute

October 6, 2023 - October 8, 2023

The 50-Hour Vigil of Prayer will be offered over Zoom from noon on Friday, October 6, through Sunday afternoon, October 8. Margaret Benefiel, Executive Director of Shalem, will open and close the Vigil of Prayer. In between, each hour of this Zoom gathering will be introduced by a member of the Shalem community who has been touched by the transformative offerings of Shalem. These prayer leaders represent the diversity of the Shalem community in age, gender and race, as well as in experience – from those who have supported Shalem for decades, to those who have just discovered its richness. Our prayer team hails from throughout the US, as well as Canada, Korea, Australia, South Africa, and The Netherlands. Each leader will offer an invitation into Sacred Silence that holds us all together as one. The one love held by the Holy One, life-giver, love-maker, source of justice and mercy.

You are invited to join this Fifty Hour Vigil of Prayer in any way that is right for you. There will be a Zoom link distributed to Shalem’s email list prior to the Vigil. As many people as possible are encouraged to join in the opening and closing session.
