Water Ceremony & The story of Gideon's Apple

Sunday, September 11, 2016 - 10:30am to 12:00pm
Event Type: 

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.
