Congressman John Lewis says “We must never ever hate; love is a better way.” Powerful words spoken by folks who
walk their talk. Can each of us do the same? And how can we make it possible. Presented by Rev. Rebecca Booher. Drumming
precedes the service from 10:00 to 10:20.
12 What's Love Got To Do With It? Seeking, finding, falling in, falling out of....all
the ways we describe the quest for love. Let's add a new verb..."being" love...maybe it's from this stance
that we are driven to serve others. Maureen Ceidro, MA, of Excela Health Home Care And Hospice.
Feb. 19 Silence
In a world of noise, cultivating a practice of keeping silence in order to hear our authentic self is imperative! How

Problem or Inconvenience
Robert Fulghum, author of All I Really Need to Know I Learned in Kindergarten, writes of a time when, as a young man, he
worked at a resort in northern California. For the first week at the job, he and the other employees were served wieners and
sauerkraut for lunch. When he discovered the same meal was to be served for two more days he exploded and unloaded his frustration
on the night auditor, who was a survivor of Auschwitz. In answer, he got the following:
“Fulghum, you think
you know everything, but you don't know the difference between an inconvenience and a problem. If you break your neck,
if you have nothing to eat, if your house is on fire then you got a problem. Everything else is inconvenience. Life is inconvenient.
Life is lumpy. Learn to separate the inconveniences from the real problems. You will live longer. And you will not annoy people
like me so much.”
