*First Sunday in Advent*

The Advent Adventure – When Mary Becomes Cosmic

At this time each year, like Mary, we begin our journey of grace by saying “yes” to a divine calling – inviting us to take that first step, again. 

We might be surprised to realize that this Advent journey of grace is actually the journey of our lifetimes!  As part of the service, everyone will receive the symbol of pilgrimage to carry during the journey this year.

The color associated with Advent and with Mary is Blue … won’t you wear something Blue, bring along a Friend and join us?

A portion of the offering collected that evening has been designated for Safe Homes-Rape Crisis – in Spartanburg.

Honoring Truth Tellers

a service and candlelight vigil devoted to reflecting the truth

Sunday Evening, November 13th
6:00 pm

Join us for the third of our three-year rotating tradition of ‘Honoring’ services. 
As our services on the second Sunday each November, Honor Mystics & Prophets and Honor Heretics, this is the year we Honor Truth Tellers. 

What is truth?  How do we define it?
Where do we find it?
What is our responsibility? 
How do we get into the habit of truth-telling?
Who are those who reflect the Truth?

We welcome Fayssoux Mclean & Randy Foster who will highlight our exploration of these questions with special music and Sylvie Parris who will share her creatively poetic words.

Then … we will be invited to light a candle identifying a Truth Teller and signifying our commitment to doing the same & to being one, too.

Please bring along a Friend or two and join us for this special moment-in-time!
