January Themes: Prayer, Meditation, and Laughter

Some habits and practices are medicine for the soul.  On January 17, 24, and 31 we will be exploring these nourishing ways of being in the world in our Sunday Gatherings.  We’ll pay particular attention to what these ancient life habits can mean to us as progressive, open-minded people of faith.

Prayers for Healing and Wholeness

Kristine had surgery in Boston on Tuesday, October 8.  She and Jonathan returned home and she is recovering well.  As she continues to recover her strength and as her brain adapts to the surgery, we can continue to keep her in our thoughts and prayers.

For more information about the surgery and updates on her recovery, go to her blog at:

New Year’s Labyrinth

Monday, January 1, 2013, 10 am – 5 pm

The labyrinth is an ancient tool for prayer. Similar to a maze, but with only one path into the center (so you can’t lose your way), the labyrinth has guided spiritual pilgrims on their journeys for at least 4,000 years.

It began to be used in Christian churches as early as 350 CE, and has made a comeback in recent years by offering a chance to take time out from busy lives to reflect and pray in a different way. Walking a labyrinth offers the opportunity to pray with our bodies. It has been a meaningful practice for many throughout the ages.

Everyone is welcome to drop in anytime between 10:00 am and 4:00 pm on New
Year’s Day.  Brewster Hall will be transformed into a beautiful, sacred space for prayer and reflection.
