10:30am Sunday Service | Spontaneity
A little stability is a lovely thing in one's life. And yet at the same time, the excitement of spontaneity and trying something new can bring a different kind of joy. Fear and excitement are different sides of the same coin, so how can we embrace the new while affirming the nervousness or "negative predictions" that can appear at the thought of breaking out of one's comfort zone?
Speaker: Rev. Kelly Spahr

9:15am Drop-in Discussion: Mapping Your Carbon Footprint.
Each Sunday in the Chalice Room (second floor).
Are you due a pat on the head . . . or not so much? An awareness exercise to help you figure out where you’re at to help you make better environmental choices. Led by Kate Fleury.
(Thank you EcoJustice)
