As has been our tradition for nearly a decade, we will start our new season of programs with a Water Ceremony. The Water Ceremony is a great way to reconvene after summer break. For those who may not be familiar with this annual tradition, members and friends bring to the service a small amount of water that represents something of significance for them. One by one the water is poured into a larger bowl. This is more than a “what I did this summer” report but represents a re-gathering of our community. We will have small cups of water available if you don’t remember to bring any with you. But wait there’s more! There will be a speaker after the water ceremony. Marty Bergland will give a presentation on pioneer horticulturist, Peter Gideon, whose farm was located very near our own Fellowship.
