Sunday Service: June 18th at 10:00 AM
Father’s Day Panel – Our Father, Who Art in YOU
with Kevin, William, Dan, & Jim
A panel of fathers who range from fathering young children to young men to adults with children of their own will talk about the spiritual path of fatherhood—the challenges and the grace. The lessons learned benefit everyone, not just those that are fathers!
Special guest musician Pete Kartsounes!
Pete is a truly limitless artist and a craftsman, whose songwriting draws from a myriad of musical traditions. Writing ballads, blues, jazz, bluegrass, folk, and compositions that defy definition, he is best described as a story teller, weaving a tale through a soulful musical journey. We are so excited to have him return to play for us this Sunday.
Bring a snack to share at our after service buffet 😁

This week we give a big thank you to Karen Hall. You will often see Karen volunteering in the kitchen on Sundays. She is one of the last to leave on Sundays because of all the extra clean up she does. Karen is part of the Women’s Group hike every Wednesday, regularly participates in Spirit Groups, and loves to go walking with others looking for a walking partner, as long as she can bring her friendly dog Nika. Ask her to share one of her incredible stories of being part of a Quaker group in New York that worked with prisoners. She is most of all a lover of Peace & Kindness 💜☮️. Karen we are so fortunate to have you and the loving energy you share as part of our Unity family.
