9 AM service: Dear Children of Earth – Sparrow F. Alden
Earth Day can be every day, Earth Day can be an annual re-dedication to our seventh principle. Approach earth stewardship with forgiveness, humor, and patience. We will consider why we support this interdependent web and refresh our visions of what Earth stewardship – and Earth spirituality – mean.
10 AM Religious Education - Nick Warren leads the kids this hour on “Scientists Ask Questions!” Honoring the guidance of reason and science, Nick is taking it outdoors to ask questions, make observations, and set up a fabulous experiment on our beautiful outdoor acres! Don’t miss it, and wear good outdoor clothing!
11 AM service: Awakening to the Present – Julie Puttgen, guest speaker. Tuning in to the present moment, we will work with chanting, listening, and a felt sense of bodily experience. As the heart tunes in, the body relaxes. As the body relaxes, the breath releases, and the heart expands to full presence.
JULIE PUTTGEN is passionate about the intersections of creativity, collaboration, and spiritual practice. An artist and a former Buddhist nun, she teaches and exhibits widely. Her current projects include chaplaincy training at DHMC, teaching meditation in the community, and the Inner Beauty Bar, a playful exploration of what makes us all beautiful.
