10:30 Service:Rev. Kathy Tew Rickey, “Columbus Day or Indigenous Peoples Day?                                          
My calendar still calls the first Monday in September Columbus Day, and it remains a government and bank holiday.  What do you call it and why?  At General Assembly this summer, I noticed that when speakers introduced their home congregations or other key locations, they would mention the First Nations people associated with that location.  We will look at the reason for these G.A. disclosures and at the First Nation people of our own locale.

Kathy.

9:10 Discussion Topic:  
10:30 Service:  Rev. Kathy Tew Rickey, “The Permanent and the Transient in Our Lives”                    In 2020 so far, we have experienced a pandemic, witnessed social unrest and natural disaster, and fretted about political upheaval, all of which can throw us off balance and bring unwanted changes to our lives. Yet these vagaries prove to be transient, as well—“this too shall pass” is trite but true.  Perhaps then it would  be useful to discern what is permanent in our lives such as love, meaning, family, friendship, memories, faith,  and hope – all the ironically intangible aspects of our human living which can sustain us through hard times.
Service Leader: Ludy Goodson 

 November 1, 2020
9:10 Discussion Topic:  
10:30 Service:  Rev. Kathy Tew Rickey, “All Souls Sunday"                                        It is All Souls Day and we will engage in our annual ritual of remembering those significant persons in our lives who have died in the last year.  Be prepared to bring the names of those you wish to remember.  “To live in hearts that love is not to die.”  [Note: We revert to standard time at 2:00 a.m., Sunday morning.  Remember to set your clocks back an hour before going to bed.]
Service Leader: Ludy Goodson
