As has been our tradition for more than 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, and represents a re-gathering of our community. We will have extra water available if you don’t bring any with you. After that, we'll introduce the themes and what's coming up in our programming for the 2022-23 year. Once again, we'll be seeking volunteers to lead programs using your own resources or materials from our subscription to the Soul Matters Sharing Circle Curriculum. Please see any member of the Program Planning Committee (Dan, Marnie, or Laurie) if you are interested -- thank you!
Weather permitting, we will hold this ceremony outside, on the lawn, next to the A-Frame. If the weather is inclement, we will hold it indoors.
