The Power of Listening

When we truly listen to each other--asking the deeper questions about what issues and experiences are most alive for us now--we hear each other into wholeness, both as persons and as a community. We discover our common pains and joys, and find direction for our call to help heal the world. In September, our People Acting in Community Together (PACT) group launches a churchwide Listening Campaign. On this Sunday, Rev. Nancy invites us all to take part in this life-changing spiritual practice.

Worship Leader: the Rev. Nancy Palmer Jones; Worship Associate: Frank Bosche

El Poder de Escuchar

Cuando verdaderamente nos escuchamos mutuamente--pidiendo las más profundas preguntas sobre qué cuestiones y experiencias están más vivas para nosotros ahora—nos escuchamos mutuamente en plenitud, como personas y como comunidad. Descubrimos nuestros comunes dolores y alegrías y encontramos el sentido de nuestra llamada ayudar a sanar al mundo. En septiembre, nuestro grupo de Gente Actuando en Comunidad Juntos (PACT) lanza la Campaña de Escuchar a toda la iglesia. En este domingo, la Rev. Nancy nos invita a todos nosotros a tomar parte en esta practica espiritual que cambia la vida.

Dirige: la Rev. Nancy Palmer Jones; Asociado de Culto: Frank Bosche

Nursery: Birth - 5 years
Location: Nursery, Church’s Lower Level

Our paid staff provide a loving presence and engage children in games, stories and crafts with seasonal and holiday themes.

1st-8th Grades: Circle of Trees/Gather the Spirit

Workshop 3: Separate Fires, Kindle One Flame

"The protection of nature depends on more than the organizational strength of stewardship organizations; it also depends on the quality of the relationship between the young and nature—on how, or if, the young attach to nature. " — Richard Louv, author, Last Child in the Woods

This workshop explores interconnections of water, plants and animal life, with a particular focus on plants. Participants learn how in Nature, plants offer care and protection to animal life—for example, by supplying the oxygen we breathe. They learn why and how we care for and protect plant life—and by extension, all life—through stewardship of the environment. They learn that caring for the Earth is ultimately caring for ourselves, spiritually as well as physically.

Getting outdoors is a key part of this workshop. Activity 2, Nature's Hide and Seek, allows 20 minutes for an outdoor investigation. If you cannot walk to a vegetation-rich site from your congregation, try to arrange more time for this activity so the group can visit a complex natural habitat.

Faith in Action suggests initiating or joining a community-based effort to protect and care for your local watershed.

9th – 12th Grades
The senior high youth group meets from 11:30-12:30 after attending the first part of the 11 a.m. service.  The group offers its members a safe place to share their lives and find support and friendship among open minded and loving peers.  The group engages in discussions about issues relevant to youth’s lives and communities.
