A year, no, a decade is coming to an end. It's a normal time for introspection. Sunday, 12/29 we will try to revisit that elusive skill of learning what to hold on to, what to let go of and ... perhaps, how to know when both happens.

To some degree we are all unwittingly on a holiday express train. Too much to do, too much to think of, not enough time. And the train keeps rolling along.
On December 22nd, we'll feature a service of brief birth stories, music by the 7 Principles, selections by John Sheppard, some silence, a brief meditation, and familiar carols. Our usual sermon discussion will have a different focus, the sharing with each other of a favorite holiday memory.
So take a moment for yourself; Step off the Holiday Express Train, if only for a an hour or so.
On December 22nd we collected winter coats and all cash collected in the basket at the service will be donated to the Sandalwood Food Pantry to help them fill needed items for the Holidays. Please be generous. Also, the 22nd will be Holiday Sunday and we encouraged our congregation members to wear Holiday Sweaters, Shirts, Ties or Socks. Ugly Sweaters were welcome!

Humanist have even created a new word, Humanlight. What light through yonder window breaks? It is the light of reason and the resulting better world. Rev. Pat Jobe comes back to celebrate The Festival of Humanlight, to give us the perspective of humanist thinking and believing and action. He tells the extraordinary story of a former Christian superstar who woke up one day to find humanism. A good time will be had by all.
We’re acknowledging a new holiday celebration this year, the Festival of HumanLight, which
has been celebrated by Humanists worldwide since 2001.
It’s designed to celebrate and express the positive, secular, human values of reason, compassion, humanity and hope. It illuminates a positive vision of a happy, just and peaceful future for our world, a future which people can build by working together.
“Light” indicates the light of human reason.

Sunday December 1, 2019 "Of Sheep, Goats, Roof Railings and the Fourth Source of Wisdom" with Rev. Charlie Tyler *Video and Audio Service*
The fourth source of wisdom which builds the foundation for the Seven Principles is "Jewish and Christian teachings which call us to respond to God's love by loving our neighbors as ourselves." This message offers us the opportunity to reexamine these ancient teachings in the light of the 21st century.
