Fins, Feathers, & Fur Social
As we prepare for the blessing of our animal companions, come, meet, and socialize together. We hope to have an time of fun as we explore our place in the interdependent web of all existence!
Please bring appropriate treats for your human friends and animal companions.
Reflection Group: Your Question
Earlier this month, reflection questions were shared about this month’s theme: Belonging. This Sunday, we will take time to share the one question you have identified as speaking to you the most, i.e., “your” question. How do you answer it? What does that say to you? What did the question get you to notice or remember?

Reflection Group: Find Your Place in the Work of Belonging
Belonging always comes with blindsides. When we receive a generous welcome it’s hard for us to imagine and notice the ways in which that open door doesn’t work the same for everyone. Our faith is slowly waking up to the fact that we haven’t been and aren’t the “welcoming congregations” we aspire to be. This is especially true when it comes to race and systems of white supremacy. The gap between our intentions and impact remains painfully large. The work is urgent and large.
This morning we will explore our place in that large work.
