Special Events 

Soup Suppers and Lenten Reflection, Wednesdays, March 13th though Wednesday, April 10: We will gather in the Fellowship Hall for soup supper from 5:30 – 6:30 as usual. This year, however, we’ll begin our time for reflection and worship at 6:45 p.m.  –  and we’ll remain in the Fellowship Hall. We’ll likely conclude each week by 7:30 or so.  Each of the 5 weeks we’ll view a Ted Talk (about 20 minutes) and have time for conversation before ending the evening with a short worship service. (We’re going to take a sabbatical from Holden Evening Prayer this year.) The Ted Talks will be shown with sub-titles to make it easier for those of us with hearing loss. Each week, we’ll explore some aspect of how we can live in today’s world in ways that ease our stress and bear fruit of abundant life. Join us for this time together during these weeks of Lent!

Exploring Justice Issues Through a Documentary Lens, March 24-April 7, following worship and fellowship at 10:30:  How does the work of documentary filmmakers shape our views and our beliefs? How does experiencing how someone else lives impact how we think about large issues? Each week we’ll watch a short documentary (45 minutes or less) and talk about it afterwards!

March 31: Notes from Dunblane: Lessons From A School Shooting In the wake of the 2012 Sandy Hook Elementary School massacre that took the lives of 20 first graders and their teachers, local clergymen Father Bob Weiss receives a letter from a fellow priest in Dunblane, Scotland, whose community suffered an eerily similar fate in 1996. From across the Atlantic, the two priests forge a poignant bond through the shared experience of trauma and healing.

April 7: Out of Many, One: The United States has long offered a promise of opportunity and safety to arriving immigrants – The American Dream. However, currently facing a time of deep political, social, and cultural divide, immigration has become a divisive issue.
