WEEKLY BLESSING

 Blessed are the vulnerable, for these are the ones who embrace Holy imperfection.

Blessed are the imperfect, for these are ones who walk on Holy Ground.

Blessed are those who find perfect passion in their imperfection,

         for in their passion they glimpse Holy Perfection.

              Amen!

Creation Spirituality
Experience through art
October 27, 3:00-4:00
Fellowship Hall
 
In different ways, consciously and unconsciously, we seek to know ourselves. The more we know ourselves, the deeper our relationship is with others and with God.  Through the medium of art, therapist and artist Julia Wheeler will be leading us in creative activities that will help us get more in touch with our inner selves. No artistic ability is required!
 
Creation Spirituality through Movement will be on November 10.

 

 
New Adult Education Class
Sunday mornings, 9:30 a.m.
Fellowship Hall
 
Ken Watson is leading a new class on Sunday mornings, Reading the Bible in an Age of Cynicism.” It will address questions such as:
Where did the Bible come from?
Why are there so many versions of it?
Who decides what is the REAL BIBLE?
Given that people can read the same words and come to different conclusions about what is meant, how should the Bible be interpreted?
 
You do not need to get a book for this study. Ken will provide handouts as needed.
 
 
 
Green Chalice Program
 
DOC Green Chalice Program
To encourage and assist local congregations who wish to live out their faith by caring for creation. This program is designed to recognize congregations for being good stewards of God’s creation.
The program has two tiers. The first level is to become a Green Chalice Congregation/Assembly. The second level is to become a CERTIFIED Green Chalice Congregation or Assembly.
 
Three Steps
•  Form a Green Team
•  Sign the Green Chalice Covenant
           As children of God and followers of Christ Jesus, we covenant to:
           Worship God with all creation and pray for the healing of the earth.
           Study the climate crisis and engage others in climate solutions.
           Repent and forgive for the harm we have inflicted on the earth that sustains life.
           Advocate for ecojustice public policies and witness by living sustainable lifestyles.
           Rest in God’s good creation and invite others to delight in nature.
•  Make Three Changes
 
Proposed Changes at WFCC
•  Reduction in the use of plastic including plastic bags and water bottles at the church and by church members in their homes.
•  Plant pollinating gardens on the church grounds, with a focus on blooming plants for each season. 
•  Recycling bins in the fellowship hall.
•  Share environmental facts and tips in the church bulletin.
•  Energy audit of the church to identify areas for improvement such as energy efficient HVAC system with smart or programmable thermostats, light bulbs, and increased insulation.
 
We will discuss and vote on adopting the Green Chalice Covenant and implementing the proposed changes at our next Congregational Dialogue in October.

Centering Prayer
Thursdays at 4:00 p.m.
Fellowship Hall
 
The Wisdom Way of Knowing, Reclaiming an Ancient Tradition to Awaken the Heart by Cynthia Bourgeault
 
Centering Prayer is a way to remember to re-orient our lives. Centering prayer consists of two components:
1) Studying the process of Centering, and discussion of our reading for the week.
2) Spending twenty minutes divesting ourselves of ourselves – our thoughts, feelings, and busyness. This whole process is a self-reminder in all of life to be centered in the awareness of the presence of the Holy.
