The Abbey of Hope is a virtual community being gathered by graduates of the Chaplaincy Institute of Maine (ChIME). It is being called forth as an interfaith fellowship for postgraduate ChIMErs as well as the larger ChIME and interfaith community. It is a virtual community being organized within the framework of a cooperation circle within the United Religions Initiative for fellowship and dialogue. The Abbey, through it’s web site will be a repository for the community. It will provide an interfaith calendar and reflections on sacred writings. The Abbey will eventually provide access to classes and webinars, along with virtual access to offerings such a chanting or gong meditation, virtual book discussions etc. The web site will also post links to community partners. Through the Abbey's meet-up group, folks can access information on community activities and gatherings.
The initial gathering of this community is scheduled for September 13, 2014 with a full launch by January 2015.
