• Second Breakfast

    Second Breakfast – Sunday, October 13  will be the next breakfast-centred service during the main service. Starting at 10:30 a light breakfast of bagels and muffins will be served and all are welcome! After breakfast, we’ll stay around tables for some input and interaction. (Children will head upstairs after the breakfast time.) We’re hoping that this becomes a fun and creative way to get to know each other more on Sunday mornings and to learn and get inspired in new ways

    Unformed and Unfilled/ September 15, 2019

    Peter Fitch shares some of the wonderful lessons he has learned from Genesis 1. Paying attention to archaeological and literary discoveries from the ancient Near-East, he explains why Genesis is not in contradiction to the teachings of modern science. He also speaks about the revolutionary nature of the Bible’s message as it presents the idea of humans being formed in the “image and likeness” of God. Talk about high-callings!

    September Second Breakfast (September 8, 2019)

    September Second Breakfast / September 8, 2019

    On the second Sunday of each month, we gather for breakfast and discussion in smallish groups around tables. This week, Joy Benson Green, led the time. She integrated all ages into the groups, then asked the 6 groups present to work together to create a sound using something she gave them or instructed them to do. Rick Coates recorded a 15 second sound bite from each group and then, in about 25 minutes, created a piece of electronic music that was composed entirely of sounds from this experiment. We don’t have a recording of the session, but we do have a link to the music. Here it is, with a little more polish that Rick added later. 2nd Breakfast Sounds

    ** No recording this week, table discussions.

    We’re Expecting! (September 1, 2019)

    We’re Expecting!/ September 1, 2019

    Referring to the story of Mary and the angel, Gabriel, Peter Fitch riffs on the idea of “pregnancy.” Then, using Gerald May’s book, Addiction and Grace, he speaks about the new birth that is needed to overcome obstacles in our lives. He adds a bit from Victor Frankl, as well, to talk about courage and where it comes from. Check out the powerpoint while you are listening.
