Gifts We Don’t Ask For But Get Anyway

MR900412466Ever get a gift that you didn’t ask for?

I did–it was a roasting pan. 

Now the reason I got the gift was because my other roasting pan was too big for my new stove. So on the one hand, I’m glad I have it. But on the other hand, that means I have to find time to use it. 

Sometimes, surprise gifts can cause problems…..(Please click “>>” to see the rest of the message)

Godly Play for Adults, March 2 @ 8:30am

IMG_0922What you see here are just some of the Godly Play resources that we get to touch and during our time together. (You can also see my boots at the edge of the discovery table. I didn’t crop the picture. Sorry.)  I don’t think we’ll be using these crosses on Sunday. I should have picked one up to show you how close we can actually get to the materials— but hey, I wanted you to see the whole table.

If you are wondering what we’re going to do this week….
if you’re wondering whom we are going to encounter….
if you are wondering how God is going to show up in our time together, bring  your imagination and your willingness to share to Godly play for Adults this Sunday, March 2 at 8:30am. The coffee is warm and so is the fellowship. See you there!

Sounds of Silence TONIGHT @ 7pm-7:45pm

IMG_0997Your alarm clock shrieked you into waking…..
your dog growled at you when you tried to walk her,
your toddler screamed at you before he threw his sippy cup at you,
your partner fought with you….
your boss humiliated you…..
and your oldest just announced she needs you to take her to the mall—-NOW.
And all day long you longed for one quiet moment for yourself….
you may have even found yourself praying for that moment to arrive. 

Well, that moment is almost here.  Come and experience 45 minutes of sacred silence in the Sanctuary of Unity United Church. You can pray silently, talk to God silently, wonder silently,  you can read a spiritual book or count the rafters in the ceiling (as long as you do it silently). You don’t even have to stay for the full 45 minutes—just as long as you need.  You use that time however you want to use it—as long as it is silent and not a distraction to those who are there. When the 45 minutes are up, I’ll extinguish the candles and we’ll be on our way. Come and experience the healing sounds of silence.
