Sunday, July 22, 10:30 am: The Growth of Humanity
Humanity: 1- Compassionate, sympathetic, or generous: the quality or state of being human. 2- The totality of human beings: the human race.
With the two very different definitions of humanity, what does it mean to be exploring the growth of humanity? And what really is the difference? We will be looking at how our personal and spiritual growth is different to the growth of human beings, and the human race – trying to understand the pros and cons to how the growth of humans has affected humans.
Presenter: Danielle Webber
Host: Donna Ontonio
Lunch after the service.

Sunday, July 29, 10:30 am: Lammas
Come and enjoy stories, songs and poems about Lugh of the Long Arm, and Lammas, the pagan festival of first fruits. We’ll be having garden soup and fresh bread. We’ll be going out into the garden to stand in the grass in our bare feet and say a blessing for a bountiful harvest. Bring your treasures that you wished to have blessed by the group, and a potluck soup if you can.

What to Wear

We tend to be an informal group.  Basically, no one really concerns themselves with what others are wearing. As long as you are comfortable and respectful to self and others, it really does not make any difference how dressed “up” or dressed “down” you are.
We are striving to be a scent-free space. Please refrain from wearing perfume, after-shave or other scented products.
