Blessings of a Multicultural World (Sun. 30 Oct, 2016 10:30 am - 11:30 am)

Sermon by Danielle Webber, Intern Minister.

Sunday we will mark the Day of the Dead with our annual service where we remember those loved ones who are with us no more. Please remember to bring photos or meaningful objects to place on our Altar of Remembrance at the beginning of the service. The rituals performed this Sunday are done so to help us remember the loved ones we have lost this year, and in years gone by, because this is how we hope to live on in others. The fear of being forgotten is often disguised by the fear of death, so this Sunday let us remember those who have gone before us, and who have left meaning in our lives.

After our service there will be new ritual held in the Secret Garden, where we will be burning the memorial cards that have been on display beside the tower. If you would like to include memorial cards that you have written in this celebration, please visit the memorial before service and place your card into the small box to be brought outside.

With Love,
Danielle

    The Council of All Beings (Sat. 5 Nov, 2016 10:00 am - 4:00 pm)

    The Council of All Beings is a series of re-Earthing rituals created by John Seed and Joanna Macy to help end the sense of alienation from the living Earth that many of us feel. Through theatre games, exercises, mask-making and assuming of new persons we connect with the interdependent web of all existence in an engaging and powerful way. We are inspired to plan new strategies to help heal the world.

    Long time member Ilene Cummings has studied with John Seed and led "Councils" at Mid-Winter Conferences in the past.

    The suggested donation is $10. Bring your own lunch; snacks and beverages will be provided.
