Sunday, August 6—Two activities, timed so that you can participate in both.

Iced tea and water will be provided or you can bring your own beverage. You may also want to bring lawn chairs, insect repellent, and lawn games.  Croquet and bocce ball will be available, and there may be a nature hike for children and adults. This park is south of Rice on the Mississippi River.  It's the former home of Ann and Stewart Graves, part of the original group who started our UU Fellowship.

10:30 a.m. Sunday, August 20:  Meditation led by Ted Stevens *
 


10:30 a.m. Sunday, August 27:  Food: Growing It, Eating It, and Sharing It – Discussion and Potluck—Ozzie Mayers
 
This service is dedicated to reflecting on how we relate to food in our lives.  Ozzie Mayers will lead us in a discussion about ways food nourishes not only our bodies but our emotions, our souls, our minds, and our communities. You are encouraged to think about how food--growing it, eating it, sharing it-- reflects your values, your relationships to one another and the natural world, and your spiritual insights.  For refreshments, it is requested that we each bring something to share from our gardens or from local farmers' markets.  



*Each Meditation has a topic and will be led by a designated volunteer.  Following the meditation time there will be a pot luck snack and conversation.  All interested adults are welcome.


Weekly Sunday services will resume September 10 at 10:30 a.m.
