May Retreat Day
Saturday May 25, 2019
9:00 am – 1:00 pm
Saturday May 25 Rev. Deborah Streeter will join us as part of our morning 9-1 meditation time to share her Blue Theology Ministry – how we are called to care for the ocean and how the ocean deepens our spirituality.
The ocean is 75% of our planet surface. It’s the source of our climate. When we breathe, 3 out of 4 of our breaths come from oxygen from ocean plants. Thankyouocean.com.
Deborah writes a Blue Theology devotional blog every Wednesday on her Facebook page and at www.bluetheologytideings.blogspot.com. She is authorized by the United Church of Christ to encourage ocean stewardship and spirituality. Through the Christian Church of Pacific Grove and the La Selva UCC church she leads youth service trips and adult pilgrimages along Monterey Bay. She has been a weekly volunteer guide at the Monterey Bay Aquarium for 20 years and was a docent at Pt. Lobos for 10 years. Come and sea! Dive deep into ocean spirituality.
Coffee, tea and refreshments will be provided
A freewill offering will be available.

July 27, 2019 MMG Retreat Day 9am – 3pm
The Moses in my heart trembles
not quite willing
to accept the prophet hidden in my being
wondering how much it will cost
to allow that prophet to emerge.
O child of unnecessary shoes
cast them off
and stand in readiness
on this holy ground.
For the Egypt in people’s lives
Demands that you see the burning bushes
all around you
away from the comfort
of well-protected feet.
The ground you stand on is holy.
Take off your shoes!
The ground of your being is holy.
Take off your shoes!
Awaken your sleeping prophet
Believe in your Moses
And go . . .
