City Love: Urban Spirituality on Two Wheels

Saturday, 2:00pm | Open

Much spirituality focuses on finding the Holy in the wilderness. Yet Christians are a people whose story starts in the garden, but ends in the city. How do we truly see both grief & joy on every block? “City Love” is a facilitated conversation about the ways cities share us spiritually, with storytelling of growing into my identity as a daily-commuting cyclist and learning to fully love my city by biking it daily as a spiritual discipline. Laura Everett is the author of “Holy Spokes: The Search for Urban Spirituality on Two Wheels.”

Laura Everett

Laura Everett is happiest exploring somewhere new, preferably by bike. Laura is the author of “Holy Spokes: The Search for Urban Spirituality on Two Wheels.” Ordained by the United Church of Christ, Laura is formed by many parts of the Church. By day, Laura serves as the Executive Director of the Massachusetts Council of Churches, scouting for signs of Christian unity. By night, she’s an unabashed urbanist and a bicycle evangelist. Laura aims for attraction not persuasion. A moderately competent seamstress, Laura loves working with her hands. She believes the work of this moment is to notice and dismantle the racism that has divided this nation and the Church. She’s convinced that if we’re all not free, it isn’t the gospel truth. Laura lives in Boston with her wife Abbi, who has a far more interesting vocation as a middle school Latin teacher.
