What are we Waiting for?

Sunday December 4, 2016 10:45am

Carol Alfus

In our get-it-now culture, waiting is something we don’t enjoy doing. Yet the season of Advent invites us to do just that, and has benefits to offer if we allow ourselves to just be present and wait. Waiting of a different kind will be needed as we move forward in seeking a new ministry for Tree of Life. Come hear about what that journey will entail, and how all of us will play a part.

Sacred Listening

Through the month of November our focus has been story. Everyone has a story to share, and one of the most important jobs in storytelling belongs to the listeners. Join us for an adapted practice of “Lectio Divina” / learning to engage one another’s stories as if they are sacred. We will also share a gluten free, vegan bread together. If there are any dietary concerns, please contact M.E. Tanabe. m.e.tanabe@comcast.net

What does it mean to be a Community of story? This is our question for November. Our lives are not just made up of stories, they are also made by stories. This is the message of our faith: We have a choice. Our stories are not predetermined. So let’s tell a new story!
