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 'Be Bold'. Have you ever given up on a dream because you were too afraid to follow it through? Or told yourself you were not good enough yet? Our visions and dreams are often held back by our fears and doubts: we wait until we are good enough to follow them through, which can leave us waiting our entire lives. Former New Unity member Marta Pacini will exhort us instead to reconcile our visionary self and our fearful self: to accept that perfection is out of our reach, face up to our fears and “follow the maze within our heart” (Leslie Takahashi Morris).
