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 bring any with you. After that, we'll introduce some changes to our programming for the 2017-18 year in the spirit of welcoming all into our fellowship.
