What's Happening June 8 - 14, 2015

Join us Sunday, June 14 1t 10:30 am for The Darker Side of Beauty with Rev. Diane Rollert and music by Jean Séguin, Denis Barsalo, Stuart Edding and Jane Critchlow. They say that beauty is only skin deep, but the truth is that societal norms and our own expectations around beauty can be very harmful to ourselves and each other. A seemingly superficial topic, talking about  physical beauty is often taboo in our communities. What happens if we look at it head on?

The last Play group will be Tuesday June 9 at 10 am. Seeking the Sacred Stories will also have it's last meeting Tuesday at noon. The Book Discussion meets Wednesday, June 10 at 5:30 pm followed by a Council meeting at 6:30 PM. SECC will meet at 12:15 pm following the Sunday service for their last meeting before the summer break.
