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 ‘Turning Points’. As we look back over our life journeys, we are each likely to find a number of decisive places in the path. Some may have been sudden, unexpected events that sent us in a different direction. Others may be more gentle turns that seem more obvious in hindsight than they did at the time. Some of these turning points were moments of joy or delight. Many, though, were unwelcome and we responded at the time with dismay. Today we look back on the turning points of our lives and consider what they - and our responses to them - have to tell us about how we move forward into the future.
