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 Barriers to Happiness'. The quest for happiness can seem very difficult: life seems to throw so many obstacles in our path. But if we look closer, we can see that our journey toward happiness is so often blocked by barriers of our own making: guilt, shame, fear, regret, resentment and self-criticism. They can easily prevent us from moving forward positively. We'll explore how can we can reduce such barriers and move forward toward happiness.
