Mark Belletini writes: “I have not lost the power to be amazed by the glory of the day. There is more delight, I hear, more awe, more sheer amazement under the dome of night’s heaven than in the glaring, blinding, too-busy day….”  Especially in holiday times when there is just so much to do, it’s easy to lose track of what is most important, easy to get lost in the busy-ness and lists of tasks.

Where do you find awe or amazement?  Has it shifted over time?  What do you find in those moments of awe: comfort? support? motivation? escape? connection?

Our Leader, Jone Johnson Lewis, will facilitate and guide the participative reflection.  Music by Lindsey Wilson.

Ethics for Children meets concurrently with our Sunday programs. Please join us!

11 a.m. is gathering time, to meet and greet one another.  We start the formal program at 11:15 and usually end about 12:30.  After that, we have a time of informal conversation with some beverages and snacks.  Please feel free to bring some snacks to share!  

Our Ethics Matters theme for December is Awe: the practice of reverence and appreciation for the wonders we experience.
