Practices to Transform Ourselves and Our World 

2017-2018 – Monthly Themes

Our themes: Different practices to transform ourselves and our world (recall that our congregation’s mission is to “transform our selves and our world through compassionate action”). Here’s the slate:

September – Promise: the practice of covenant making

October  – Healing: the practice of holding hurt and seeking wholeness

November – Ancestry: the practice of reflecting upon the places and people from which we come

December – Presence: the practice of being

January – Resistance: the practice of standing up for your values

February – Interdependence: the practice of feeling our connection with the larger whole

March – Risk: the practice of trying something that might not work

April – Transformation: the practice of seeking meaningful growth

May – Embodiment: the practice of physical be-ing

June – Joy: the practice of embracing life

As usual, we will delve into our themes in our Sunday worship services.

In the meantime, we’re going to try something different – Theme Exploration sessions. These are stand-alone, one-time, drop-in, open-to-anyone sessions after church. Come to one or both!
