September 21, 2014, 9:30 and 11:00 AM "To the End that All Souls May Grow," with Reverend Jill McAllister
Our theme for worship and for religious learning and growth this year is: religious growth and learning! What is the religious life, what is the spiritual life, if not a process of learning and growing, especially in the directions of peace, justice, compassion, wisdom and joy? In conjunction with the curriculum for our children and youth, we’ll be specifically considering what we can learn from the major classical wisdom traditions of the world. This week we introduce the theme by thinking together about growth.
Infant and toddler care is available during both services. Religious Exploration classes are offered for Children (pre-K - 6th grade) and Youth (7th/8th and high school-age) during the 11:00 AM service. Children and youth are also welcome at both services.
September 21, 7:00 PM Wheel of the Year: Mabon (Fall Equinox) Worship, with Suzanne Wright, Cliff Pereira, and Susan Sanford
Our Wheel of the Year services mark 8 special points in the solar year: the equinoxes, the solstices, and four points in between. Mabon is one name for the Fall Equinox, when day and night are the same length as we in the northern hemisphere are moving through fall towards winter. At this Fire Circle gathering, we’ll celebrate the harvest and prepare ourselves for the dark months to come.
Note: because of extreme fire danger, we will not light a fire. The Woods Fire Circle where this service will be held is three miles east of Corvallis. For information and directions, email firstname.lastname@example.org or call 541-753-9177. Please bring: outdoor chair(s); appropriate clothing for being outside; your own water bottle; percussion instruments; finger foods to share.
