July 19

Our Favorite Poetry
Peter VanDeBogert

Participants are invited to read their favorite poems, plus any they may have written themselves.  Everything from Walt Whitman to Robert Frost to Mary Oliver and anything else. If you’re not into reading poetry, you’re welcome to just  come and listen. Most of the hour will be the same format as a regular service.

July 26

Brian Orr

Consciously and subconsciously our minds, bodies, and spirits work to get to a place of ease. This is what spirituality and religion comes down to at a basic level. It defines our search for comfort in our lives. Join us for an exploration of  “Ease.”

Silent Meditation
Peter VanDeBogert

This service could easily be a follow-up to Brian’s previous week’s theme. The first 15 minutes will follow the regular routine. The last 45 minutes or so will include a brief introduction and then the silent meditation itself, followed by optional sharing. Even if meditation is new to you, you will find this process easy, enjoyable, and perhaps revealing.

More Than Meets the Eye
Amy Tedford

This service  will explore various encounters Amy has had with animals, both wild and domestic; and offer some layman’s speculations about the connections between human and animal consciousness.

Note: The first service of the 2015-’16 church year will be held on Sunday, September 13.
