June 11 The Story of Your Happiness by Rev. Kathleen Rolenz
2016-2017 was “The Year of the Story,” with each month exploring the answer to the question: “Tell Me a Story about a Time When You…” We’ve looked at experiences such as “faced your fears,” or “found your voice.” This is Rev. Rolenz’ last full service, so we’ll look back at some of the concerns we’ve uncovered, the joys we’ve shared, and the new story that is being written for the Fellowship’s future. This service will include the 95th anniversary of the Flower Ceremony, created by Reverend Norbet Capek of the Czech Republic. Bring a flower to share to create our common bouquet, and you’ll take a new one home with you, as a reminder that a joy shared is a joy increased.
June 18 Summer Solstice Revels: Hail, Goddess of Playfulness!
with Jay Thomas, Music Director
The Summer Solstice on June 21 heralds the start of summer with the longest day and shortest night of the year. The change of season also initiates in many of us an urge to spend more time outside. This service celebrates this turning outward while honoring some Pagan traditions connected to this pivotal time of year. In true Revels fashion, the service will contain elements of story and song, meditation and movement. Come play with us!
June 25 Waiting for the World to Change by Lynda Collins
Worldwide 1.3 billion people live with at least one disability. That’s billion with a B. This is roughly the size of China. Yet people with disabilities are largely invisible. Through personal stories and the wisdom of children, Lynda Collins and Jeanne Brand share insights to life experiences and cultures often overlooked and misunderstood.
July 2 No Service
July 9 What We Learned about Race and Ourselves with Rev. Kathleen Rolenz
From January – March 2017, sixteen members of the Fellowship engaged in an intensive curriculum called “Beloved Conversations.” Through the course of our time together, we learned much about the realities of race, racism, white privilege, white supremacy and of course, ourselves. We’ll engage with one another and with the congregation in a complex, challenging and ultimately liberating conversation.
