It’s Stone Salad Time!


You’ve heard of the story of Stone Soup?  If not, you’ll hear it this week. Our modernized version is called Stone Salad. We’ll celebrate generosity together, even when we can’t be in the same space for our annual pot-luck salad.  We can do this with social distancing, too!

What can you share?  A stone — and a word!  Or just one! More details are also on this page.  You’re welcome to share an illustration or stone even if you can’t make it to the Sunday program.

11 a.m. is gathering time, to meet and greet one another and make preparations together.

We start the formal program at 11:15.  It will just be a reading of the two stories, a little music appropriate for all ages, and the sharing of words, so all ages are invited to attend!  We’ll add some social time for those who want to check in or talk.

Zoom link is on this page.

Our Ethics Matters theme for November is Healing.



Stone Salad

What to Bring?

A Stone!

On any of the days between Sunday, November 15, and Friday, November 20, bring a stone (from your yard? from your travels?) to the Society and place it near the sign near the front door. And pick up a special stone from near the TAKE ONE sign, also near the front door those same days.  Remember if you’re there at the same time as someone else, wear a mask and keep a safe social distance.

A Word!

We’ll ask each of those participating to share a word that they bring, symbolizing their hopes for the community’s future.  Don’t worry if someone else already said the word you bring — that some of us agree is a positive thing!  We’ll create a word cloud out of those words, and use it to remember the message of Stone Salad: Bring what you’ve got, everyone’s got something to share, nothing is too small.
