September 13 – “Ingathering Water Communion,” Rev. Elaine Bomford. We begin the new church year with a Unitarian Universalist tradition, the Water Communion, adapted for Zoom. As rivers converge on their way to the ocean, we gather in unity with one another and the life-giving waters that sustain us. Please bring a printed picture, a postcard, and/or a story telling us about waters you have visited in the recent or far past. If you have saved some actual water from that place to show us, all the better. All ages welcome to share

September 20 – “Dynamics of White Racism” with guest speaker Keith Penniman. Can we turn old white privilege into new white consciousness?

September 27 – “Yom Kippur and Lessons of Forgiveness,” Rev. Elaine Bomford. An age-old Yom Kippur proverb says “The One Who Made You...is always ready to forgive. His mercy, like the rain from heaven, falls on all who seek it.” Drawing upon Jewish wisdom, we reflect upon the High Holy Day theme of forgiveness.

October 4 – “Circle Sunday” at Hastings House, David Ruffin, a new service provider.

Thoughts and Meditations:

 

           "If we can muster up that degree of commitment and get away from the uniquely American perception that if something can't be done immediately it isn't worth doing, then I think the Hunger Movement, this small but growing minority of us, can have a truly significant impact."

                                                                 ~Harry Chapin
