Rohr book discussion

Sundays through Jan 27, 8:30am–Richard Rohr book discussion

Falling UpwardFor the month of January we have been looking at Richard Rohr’s book Falling Upward: A Spirituality for the Two Halves of Life in which he explores the different work (spiritually, emotionally) we are called to do for a meaningful life in early adulthood and later adulthood. As Rohr puts it: “The first task (first half of life) is to build a strong container or identity; the second is to find the contents that the container was meant to hold.” You’re welcome to come dig into Rohr’s ideas with us, whether you’ve read the book or not! Whether you’ve attended any other of these January meetings! Join us at 8:30am on Sunday in the Fireside Room.

Epiphany Stars

Sunday Jan 27, 10am-Receive your Epiphany Star during Worship

Epiphany StarsTwo years ago, we gave out paper stars, each with a unique word on it, that you could hang on your kitchen refrigerator, your bathroom mirror, or wherever you might see it regularly, to ponder what gifts that word might bring into your life in the coming year. We plan to do the same thing during the worship service on Sunday January 27. Please come pick up your word! And stay for a small meal and the annual meeting after worship.
