We will meet for meditation on all Thursdays in July and August from 7:00 – 8:00 pm in the fellowship hall. Our format is two 20-minute periods of sitting in silence with a 10 minute walking meditation in between. Afterwards there is a brief time for announcements and sharing prayer concerns.

Silent Retreat Day
Join us for a day of silence that will include sitting and walking meditation, watching a video featuring a talk by the Dalai Lama, and gentle yoga relaxation. We will have three periods of meditation both in the morning and afternoon. We will begin sitting at 9 AM, so plan on arriving a little early to settle in. If you are staying for the afternoon, please bring a sack lunch and a yoga mat or blanket.
Coffee, tea and refreshments will be provided. Feel free to join us for all or part of the day.
A freewill offering will be available.

Inspirational Poetry with Joseph
“…feelings like disappointment, embarrassment, irritation, resentment, anger, jealousy, and fear, instead of being bad news, are actually very clear moments that teach us where it is that we’re holding back. They teach us to perk up and lean in when we feel we’d rather collapse and back away. They’re like messengers that show us, with terrifying clarity, exactly where we’re stuck. This very moment is the perfect teacher, and, lucky for us, it’s with us wherever we are.”
