All the Yoga You Do
Yoga is an ancient form of mental, physical, and spiritual practice that has become popular in the United States. Three of our members who practice and teach yoga have planned a service with Reverend Dittmar that shares some of the many forms and meanings of yoga. We will try some chants, breathing, meditation, and chair yoga. Come in comfortable clothes and if you are interested, bring a mat to spread out either in the sanctuary or the foyer (there is sound from the service out there and less foot traffic). All are welcome so bring a friend along! We will also hear some beautiful classical music sung by our very own Char Jackson and Martha Dillow. They will perform duets “La Nuit”, by Ernest Chausson, and “Puisqu’ici-Bas Toute Ame”, by Gabriel Faure. Martha will sing Villanelle, by Hector Berlioz, and Char will sing “Les Berceaux”, by Gabriel Faure. It will be a real treat and you won’t want to miss it!

Mindfulness and Gratitude
This year our youth will offer a service on mindfulness and gratitude. There will be a "Stress for Success" exercise, poems, music and top secret surprises that can't be shared with adults prior to the service. The youth of our congregation are excited to share this amazing opportunity and experience with you!
