Barth House is a place for you to be. That’s all you have to do—just be. You can study, work, pray, socialize, eat your lunch, use the WiFi, and find community. It is a community center of the Episcopal Diocese of West Tennessee, and you are the community!
Over the last two semesters, some of our community building highlights included the enrichment received from digesting art and process with filmmaker Kyle Taubken and two of his leading actors at our Filmmaker Showcase; a room full of student artists meeting and building connections at our Advent Arts Market; and the touching final College Night compline of the semester, which was led by students and featured their musical offerings.
Other ways you can come and be at the Barth House include the Quarterly Recovery Book Club and the monthly Lynching Sites Project Community Meeting.
The Addiction and Recovery Ministry of the Episcopal Diocese of West Tennessee convene quarterly at the Barth House for its Book Club.
Join them on August 7 and November 6. Contact Laura White (901-210-1833) or Shannon Tucker (901-281-0785) for more information.
The vision of the Lynching Sites Project of Memphis is “to create a new legacy of racial equality and justice by turning the light of truth on lynchings in Shelby County, Tennessee.” (LynchingSitesMem.org) They encourage anyone who is interested in their work to join them at their monthly meetings at the Barth House on the second Monday of every month at 5:30 p.m. They even have a way for you to join by Zoom if you wish.
The Barth House seeks to support creativity, people, and faith and the interlocking features of all three. We are joyful to announce our upcoming offerings of a pollinator garden, debate project, and monthly vigils at the Barth House. Whether you have a green thumb or not and want to help us plan, develop, or maintain a pollinator garden to be enjoyed by many in our community, please let us know. The debate project will showcase the God-given gifts of creativity, faith, curiosity, and learning.
We know that even with the abundance of life surrounding us, we are all facing issues that feel too big, and our world is suffering from the violence wreaked by scarcity and fear. We don’t have a simple answer to this but to pray and connect with community. That is why we will be offering monthly vigils, to combine community engagement and faith to intentionally pour love into these areas of hurt and suffering.
Our doors are open to you.
