Insights: Identity by Chris Scheller, M. Div.

Posted by on Apr 5, 2017 in General News | Comments Off on Insights: Identity by Chris Scheller, M. Div.

I was deeply inspired by the youth-led service last Sunday – along with everyone else who was able to attend, I’m sure. Our youth group spoke eloquently on the theme of Unity. But what I want to hold up for purposes of this reflection is that it is impossible to speak about unity without speaking about individual and group identity, as well.

Religious Education April 9th

Posted by on Apr 5, 2017 in Coming Up in RE, DLRE Column, Religious Exploration | Comments Off on Religious Education April 9th

This week we will gather all classes together to celebrate the return of spring by making fairy houses! We had so much fun with this last year — we thought about what it would be like to relate to the natural world if we were really REALLY tiny — precisely the size of a fairy! We then used collected natural objects, such as twigs, moss, sea shells, pine cones, and small rocks, to build little habitats and houses for the fairies. What sort of fairies do you think would like our houses? It is interesting to look at the natural world...
