Sunday, January 2 – 11 a.m. – The Satisfaction of Action – The Rev. Peter Farriday and Laura Phelan-Shahin
A new year often brings renewed intentions. Come explore how our highest intentions and holiest aspirations come alive in works of healing, creativity, and justice-making.
Sunday, January 9 – 11 a.m. – Intentions and Our Inner Voice – David Marshak and Debi Cooper
As Katie Covey of Soul Matters said: Intention is different from setting goals or resolutions in that it “pulls us into” who we truly are. Goals and resolutions “push us out” into future possibilities. To set intentions, we must listen to our inner voice which tells us who we truly are. Join our co-presidents as we delve deeper into the meaning of intention.
Sunday, January 16 – 11 a.m. – Building Beloved Community – The Rev. Peter Farriday and Tom Lewis
On this Sunday before Martin Luther King Jr. Day, we will consider Dr. King’s prophetic call for the peace and justice that creates beloved community – and how each of us can help build it.
Sunday, January 23 – 11 a.m. – Let Service Be Our Prayer – Amy Day
Join us in our first Social Action Sunday of 2022. For those able to join us in person, we will coordinate with a local non-profit for our service time. We’ll light our chalice and ground ourselves in intention, and then roll up our sleeves and make our offering.
For those joining via Zoom, a representative from that same non-profit will share its mission with us and ways we, as a beloved community, can further its efforts.
Sunday, January 30 – 11 a.m. – The Muse Returns – Pat McCutcheon
The Fellowship’s Friday Poets have met since National Poetry Month 2020 to share and discuss poems. These 11 participants have grown as poets and as friends and have overcome some of the Covid blues by sharing their writings. They are eager to discuss the poets they have discovered, like Lisel Mueller, who writes of hope: “It is the singular gift we cannot destroy in ourselves.” The Friday Poets have also found the courage to write of their own experiences in ways that are light and dark with much in between.
