8:30 am - 12:30 pm
Sharon Fisher will lead us in The Dances of Universal Peace and Walking Concentrations, spiritual practices in motion. Drawing on the sacred phrases, scripture, and poetry of the many spiritual traditions of the earth, the Dances blend chant, live music and evocative movement into a living experience of unity, peace and integration. This taste of our true nature – as Universal Peace – opens to the possibility of a deep spiritual revolution within the person. Come, dress comfortably, dance. It’s easy! In the Edna Jones Assembly Room.
Bill Marconi of the Germantown Settlement Academy returns to lead us in exploring how the rhythms of the drums reach to our primeval souls. From booming deep drums to gentle finger percussives, let your heartbeat sync with those around you in finding a common rhythm that builds a unique spiritual union…that is really cool! In the Youth Lodge/ Nursery School.
Have you always wanted to be part of that awesome USG Choir but didn’t have the time for practice or the nerve to sing out in your very questionable voice? Our inimitable Music Director Mark Daugherty will take you and mold you into a virtual diva (or divo?) in only 45 minutes and lead you and your hearty fellow choristers in providing the music for our special Community Day service. In the Edna Jones Assembly Room.
Esther Wyss-Flamm returns to lead a gentle but stimulating class which features classic yoga poses modified as needed (chairs okay) to meet all levels from beginner to yogi with a sense of the spiritual and meditative dimensions of movement. Wear comfortable clothes, bring your mat or borrow one from Esther. In Sullivan Chapel.
Thanksgiving Bread Communion, Rev. Kent Matthies
Thanksgiving is known as the American Seder. Regardless of religion this holiday allows us to pause and give thanks and commit to giving back to life. At this worship service, we will reflect upon and share the things for which we are grateful. And we will partake in the bread communion, led by our children.
