11/17 Bohm Dialogue — Dreaming

Posted by on Nov 12, 2019 in General News, Religious Exploration, Salon - Bohm Dialogue

Dreams are the touchstones of our characters. — Henry David Thoreau

For November our topic-word is “Dreaming”.

Join us to listen to what others think and to share what you think.  The Religious Exploration Salon is a group that meets 3rd Sundays to discuss various topics in the format called Bohm Dialogue which emphasizes respectful listening and balanced, synergistic sharing. For more details about how Dialogue works, please see this intro.

Everyone is welcome. You are welcome to think about the topic beforehand but no preparation is required or expected — come as you are with whatever thoughts/intuitions you have, ready to listen, learn and contribute.  We next meet Sunday November 17 at 7pm in the Brackett Room.

Contact Paul Reising, Tom Yelton or Jan Hardenbergh for more information.

December 1 – Simple Gifts

Posted by on Oct 31, 2019 in Coming Up in RE, Religious Exploration

RE is collec/ting donations for a “Simple Gifts” class. We would appreciate your donation of small, unwrapped, inexpensive gift items for all ages—this is the perfect time to “regift” those items that you don’t have a use for! Items should be in good condition, but don’t need to be new!

RE children will “shop” for holiday gifts for their family members and friends during class on December 1. The class is a great lesson for the students about the spirit of giving! Please bring your donations to First Parish any time during November. Items can be left in the RE Office or given to Director Jenna Kyes. Thank you!
