The Soul Matters theme for October, which our whole church is exploring in many ways, is “Deep Listening.” How are you listening: to your loved ones, to yourself, to your life, to the environment around you?
It is not too late to sign up for a Soul Matters group for the year! Small groups of 8-10 people meet online each month, guided by a facilitator, to deeply listen to one another and to share from the heart. Learn more about Soul Matters and sign up on our website.
|Children’s Faith Development |
|There will be no children’s worship this week, as it is the second Sunday of the month. This week, children are invited to work with your sacred space-making materials to find and create sacred space! |

|Samhain Celebration |
The wheel of the year has turned and the season of Samhain is before us.
In years past, we have gathered in person. This year, our gathering will be on Zoom. We celebrate the thinning of the veil between our world and the world of spirit. We celebrate our beloved dead. We celebrate our sheroes and heroic figures.
We will gather on Saturday, 31 October 2020 from 7 – 8:30 pm in our sacred space on Zoom. We will present a slideshow of our beloved dead, a link will be forthcoming for sharing these pictures.
Ms. Heather Gehron-Rice, M.Div.

Please keep Doug and Kathy Marschka in your hearts as they mourn the tragic lose of Doug’s sister, Deanna Marschka. Deanna, an accomplished pianist, loved music and animals. With an RN degree from Geisinger, she had a long career in nursing and later in nurse management. She will be remembered as a kind, jovial, and compassionate woman, missed by many.
