Our regular Sunday Gathering. An opportunity for wisdom, joy, solace, and community – followed by a healthy dose of caffeine, cake, and conversation.
Gatherings include live music, a story for children, singing, poetry and literature, a talk from our minister, and time for sharing joys and sorrows.
The theme of this week's Gathering is 'The Happy Hermit'. When we talk about happiness, one image that comes to mind is that of the solitary hermit. They've given up everything, including relationship with other people. A traveler stumbles across the cave or mountain top to find the hermit looking up at them with a blissful and welcoming smile. So, is giving up things a true path to happiness?
