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 will be “Day of Atonement – Apology and Forgiveness”. This Sunday before Yom Kippur, the Jewish Day of Atonement, we consider how we have each missed the mark over the past year. We have harmed others knowingly or unknowingly, and we aim to make it right and begin again with a strong vision of the people we long to be. We consider too the dual perspectives of atonement – that of the person offering apology, and that of the recipient.
