September 20: “Blessed Stress: An Equinox Celebration” with Rev. Dr. Mellen Kennedy
Stress is a natural, necessary part of life on this planet, yet we tend to think of it as abhorrent. What is stress really and what could possibly be the blessing of stress? As we transition from summer to autumn and as we pass the six month mark of the pandemic state of emergency, let’s pause for deeper reflection. What does the wisdom of the world’s spiritual traditions have to teach us about stress? Join us for an exploration of living well and thriving in these interesting times.
September 27: “Power of Playing” with Caro Barschow
Playing is a process of discovery and experimentation. Its benefits are immense: it cultivates agency, resilience and cooperation. It comes naturally for children, less so for adults. This service invites all ages and abilities to play in the Zoom environment, through simple movements and dialogue activities. At play, we will consider questions of justice and meaning-making relevant to the challenges and opportunities of these times.
