Four years ago, in “the before times”, three multi-talented singer-songwriters—LaRhonda Steele, Laura Berman and Lauri Jones—came together as “The 3 La’s” for a memorable holiday concert. This August, join them as they reunite at an informal afternoon event, where you can hear what music they’re creating now, both individually and together, in an intimate setting. It’ll be uplifting, inspiring, and entertaining!

Tickets are $25 in advance, and we expect to sell out, so don’t delay in purchasing your tickets. ONLY IF we have capacity, will you be able to buy tickets at the door for $30.

2nd Annual American Day of Atonement

 —  —

Iliff School of Theology, Shattuck Hall, 2323 East Iliff Avenue, Denver


As citizens of the United States, it is part of our shared civic responsibility to wrestle with the challenging realities of American history, especially the ongoing legacy of bigotry and racism in America. Doing so need not to diminish our pride as Americans, individually and collectively. We confront injustices past and present to learn from them and to respond with action in service of the common good – coming together to build a nation that more fully realizes the ideals of equality, freedom, and justice for all – in word and deed.

What: inspired by the Jewish Day of Atonement, Yom Kippur (which falls on the 10th day of the Jewish year), we hope to make January 10th a day of civic learning, fasting, and acting – engaging our diverse communities in mindful reflection, dialogue, prayer, commitment, and action. This year’s theme will focus on the anti-racist efforts, atoning for and overcoming past and present injustices. The day’s activities will culminate in an inclusive gathering of civic leaders, elected officials, and representatives from a diverse array of secular and spiritual organizations.

When: January 10, 2023 from 7 PM to 8:30 PM Mountain Time.

Where: In-person at the Iliff School of Theology (Shattuck Hall, 2323 East Iliff Ave, Denver) and live streamed on Vimeo.

Co-sponsors: The Interfaith Group of Evergreen, The Interfaith Alliance of CO, Congregation Beth Evergreen, Iliff School of Theology.

Along with our line-up of speakers, there will be a multi-faith Gospel choir, led by the magnificent Val Robinson. Please join us in voice and spirit ! There are two rehearsals, open to all singers: Sunday Jan 8, 2023 11:30am @ Zion Temple Church 1600 N. Syracuse Street Denver CO 80220 Tuesday Jan 10, 2023 5pm @ Iliff School of Theology, Shattuck Hall 2323 East Iliff Avenue Denver, CO 80210
