Schedule of Events
Our Sunday service starts at 10:30. It is followed by a break for snacks and coffee. After the break many of our
members and friends stay for a half hour's lively discussion of the morning's
4 Plan B The Chinese word for “crisis”
is said to be composed of two characters that signify “danger” and “opportunity.” Although this may
not be exactly correct, we can use it to define the times in which we currently find ourselves. Which will we choose? Is it
possible to turn the danger many of us feel into an opportunity? Let’s talk about it! Presented by Rev. Rebecca
Drumming will precede the service, 10:00 to 10:20 AM.
Dec. 11 Holiday Spirit
While many of us are only beginning to recover from the recent tumultuous
elections, we are now being thrust headlong into the hectic holiday season. In the interest of taking care of ourselves, one
another and our beloved community, let us “press pause”, and spend a brief period of noticing and nurturing the
spirit that resides deep within us. Today’s message will include a brief guided meditation. Presented by our Fellowship
President, Jim Galik.
Dec. 18 Stillness
The Solstice is the day when the sun "stands still." Advent is the time of "waiting in joyful expectation."
Where do we find ourselves in the tension between the two, and how do we understand who we are within that space? What is
it that we are truly waiting for? Maureen Ceidro of Excela Health will be our speaker. Special music by our choir.
Dec. 25 Come As You Are
- Christmas Cocoa, Cookies and Carols Dr. Waun will circle up
the chairs for whoever is in the mood to come and share favorite Christmas memories, while sipping hot chocolate, nibbling
cookies (bring some of your leftover ones), and singing a couple of carols. Come as you are, if you dare....PJs, robes,
slippers, and Snuggies are perfectly acceptable.

"Beyond even any teaching, though,
the aspect of spiritual life that is the
is the element of
grace. Grace is something that comes
to us when we somehow find
ourselves completely available,
we become openhearted and openminded,
and are willing to entertain
the possibility that we may not know
what we think we know. In this gap of
not knowing, in the suspension of any
conclusion, a whole other element
life and reality can rush in. This is
what we call grace. It's that moment
moment of recognition
when we realize something that
previously we never could quite
