Skyspace viewings are cancelled until further notice pending repairs.
We regret any inconvenience that this may cause.
These can be stories from your own experience or stories about others; stories you bring; stories about the holiday season or about other matters. On Dec 4, we were treated to a reading of Dylan Thomas' "A Child's Christmas in Wales" by Jim Garson, as well as a lovely vignette by May Munn recalling a Christmas she experienced as a child in Palestine.
During WWII and the subsequent Communist occupation of East Germany, many Christians were unable to practice their faith openly. Some would light candles instead. Quakers lit candles as a token of unity with their friends in the darkness. Now our Candlelighting can be an occasion to reflect on the past year and the one upcoming, to remember those who have gone before us, to hold in the Light those who are on our hearts and in our thoughts, and to be grateful.
There will be song sheets available. If there is a specific carol you would like to have included, please contact Kimberly (email@example.com). If you have an instrument or a voice, please come sing and play!
Adult First Day School will host the Seekers Gathering, Dec. 8, 9:20 a.m.--10:20 a.m. in The Meeting House. This is an opportunity for new or long-time attenders of The Meeting to ask questions about our faith and practice, and to join in sharing our personal experiences from our spiritual journey.
Participants may tell a story from their personal experience or bring one by someone else; stories may be about the holidays or not. A Lake Wobegon story by Garrison Keillor may be included, as well.
