At Mount Tabor we believe that living God’s love begins with the open invitation to all people to join us at the Meal that is central to our worship life.
Inclusive, unconditional love meets us where Christ gives himself freely to us. In the Meal of holy communion, we remember and celebrate Jesus’ sacrificial love that empowers our serving in the world.
For us, “grace” means that God meets us just as we are with joy and new life. This is why we worship God together every week.
The Spirit of God has made an open invitation to meet us every week in this special way, in the Meal of grace. All are invited. All are welcome: young and old, doubters and believers, seekers and disciples. Our diversity at the Meal reflects the beauty of our Creator’s wisdom.
Come celebrate with us and be empowered by God’s love for justice, peace, and community!
Maud’s Café is a newly-built coffee shop that will offer an 8-12 week employment training program for the youth from Volunteers of America, Utah’s Homeless Youth Resource Center, Young Men’s and Women’s Transition Homes. Patrons of Maud’s will be supporting the Wasatch Front economy by purchasing quality, locally-produced goods. Join us in giving homeless youth the opportunity to contribute to our community, as they stabilize their lives and work toward self-sufficiency.
The Roundtable will meet Monday February 24, 11:30am to 1pm in Room 208 (second floor conference room) at the Research Administration Bldg at the University of Utah.
The topic for our discussion is "This is Your Brain on God: Spiritual Experiences Activate Brain Reward Circuit"
Dr. Jeff Anderson, University of Utah School of Medicine
"We’re just beginning to understand how the brain participates in experiences that believers interpret as spiritual, divine or transcendent,” says senior author and neuroradiologist Jeff Anderson. “In the last few years, brain imaging technologies have matured in ways that are letting us approach questions that have been around for millennia.”
The study is the first initiative of the Religious Brain Project, launched by a group of University of Utah researchers in 2014, which aims to understand how the brain operates in people with deep spiritual and religious beliefs.
