Dear Friends,
 
Sunday Worship, June 5, 5 pm 
 
"Taize Chanting"   Taize was developed by a group of ecumenical Christians in Taize France as a worship style including, silence, scripture reading and chanting. We welcome you to join us in this meditative worship service, once a month and offered this first Sunday of June. 

Sunday June 12, 5 pm"Grandmother as THE New Religious Archetype for our Time" The Thirteen Indigenous Grandmothers invite us to embrace the Wise Old Women as religious leader. She embodies  unconditional love for everyone in the human family and non-human family. She  comforts men and empowers women, loves all the children and grandchildren as well as  all creatures on earth. We need their wisdom so desperately in our time of ecologic crisis. Listen to her wisdom.  "You do not labor alone, nor will you ever labor alone. We stand at your side, behind you, above and beneath you. You are our own. You are our treasure. Never forget this.
"The world you are living in is full of strife. Do not look to the world at a time like this-looking to the world will make you lose your balance, it will make you feel crazy. Everything on earth is shifting now. Let it! The very ground under your feet is shaking.
"Do not look outside yourself for comfort now. There is no comfort 'our there'. Instead, turn within. Turn within and let us hold you. We WILL hold you. We will hold you steady through all that is taking place and through all that will take place. Do not worry about the world. Do not try to make sense of things that make no sense at all. Let the energy on earth shift now as it must, and while it is shifting, sink into our embrace. Rest in our love. We will hold you steady during this time of change."   -the Great Council of the Grandmothers


Sunday June 19, 5 pm " "Jesus Third Way" We will begin a new book for Monday book group on June 6th called Jesus and Non-Violence, A Third Way. Walter Wink offers us the teachings of Jesus as the key to non-violence and we will consider giving up our fight or flight instincts and learn more creative responses to conflict.  We  will develop "Jesus' Third Way" of creative problem solving which demands care for our oppressors and innovative responses that include caring for the conversion of our enemies. Join us for lively and engaging  theater improvisations using the ideas of Brazilian theater artist, Augusto Boal and his, Theater of the Oppressed. We will explore our own personal challenges as well as global issues and explore how to use the way of love and "Jesus's Third Way" as we prepare for civil disobedience and radical love of enemies. 

Sunday June 26, 5 pm "Fridalupe" Frida Kahlo has become an international feminsit folk heroine and Our Lady of Guadalupe  has been of course the Black Madonna or Divine Mother of the Americas for generations. Combining them we explore women telling the truth about their pain, betrayals and lack of recognition of their talents. Our Lady holds her and all of us in her love. Together we experience a provocative symbol we will explore.  We  will paint self portraits, during worship. (Artist Christne McDonnel)
