On-Line Service!
2pm on Saturday, August 4th: https://www.facebook.com/events/430987390740005/

During the last few Winters, we’ve held on-line services on Facebook when weather prevented us from meeting at the Sanctuary on a Sunday morning. As well as providing a way for members to gather in community, a number of former members and friends from further away were glad to be able to participate. This on-line service will be held on a Saturday afternoon, primarily as training for members of the Sunday Services Committee, but you are welcome to join in, too!

August 5th: “Your One Wild and Precious Life”For most of us in our workaday lives, opportunities to be, in the words of poet Mary Oliver, “idle and blessed” are few and far between. And yet that is our romantic ideal of a Summer day, born of our culture’s collective memory of (pre-digital) childhood. How do we seek out that simple yet focused state now? How do we pay attention to what really matters right in front of us?

August 12th: “A Necessary Skepticism”

René Descartes said, “If you would be a real seeker after truth, it is necessary that at least once in your life you doubt, as far as possible, all things.” It is only by questioning what we believe and how we live that we test the quality of our beliefs and our ethics. Only when we are willing to question will our faith grow.
