Stone Soup: Trusting We Have Enough
- Rev. Diane Rollert, Katharine Childs, music by Sandra Hunt and Eleuthera Diconca-Lippert
As we gather for our all-ages service before BidSunday, we'll explore the classic folk tale Stone Soup. What magic, abundance, and delicious things can happen when each of us brings a little bit of our time, talent, and treasure? Join us to celebrate the gifts that each of us bring to our community!
Note: This is will be a shorter than usual service, followed by our BidSunday service auction and festivities. Immediately following BidSunday, many of us will travel together to join a human chain of inclusion in support of religious and individual freedom of conscience. See details elsewhere in this newsletter and in the upcoming Week at Glance.

How fortunate are the few who have never experienced having their trust betrayed in some way, large or small. The truth is, most of us have had a precarious relationship with trust at some point in our lives. This Sunday we’ll explore some models for repairing trust and healing our souls. Imam Musabbir Alam, co-founder of the Canadian Muslim Alliance, will join Rev. Diane to share in the exploration of this topic, in recognition of the month of Ramadan.
