“I’m Gonna Let It Shine!” | Student Minister Nic Filzen
Isn’t it fascinating how Daylight Saving Time ends, adding what feels like so much more darkness to our days, the same week that Diwali, the Hindu festival of lights that symbolizes the spiritual “good over evil, and knowledge over ignorance,” begins? (The midterm elections are also on Tuesday.) The transition from Daylight Saving Time to Diwali will either be a powerful symbol for the work we have done or for the work we will need to do. Janey Madlani and a few kids from RE will be offering a special reflection and presentation about Diwali.
*Soul Circles: Join Rev. Julia after the second service for a small-group discussion of our monthly theme, “Memory.” Meet from 12:30 to 2:00 pm in Jefferson Hall.

“VUCA: Volatility, Uncertainty, Complexity, Ambiguity” | Rev. Julia Hamilton
“VUCA” is a trendy way to describe the world we are living in. On this Sunday after the election, let us gather to reflect on what it means to live in a VUCA world, and how we can best live and love in such “volatile, uncertain, complex, and ambiguous” times.

“Encapsulating Gratitude: A Service of Thanksgiving” | Rev. Julia Hamilton
When historians look back on this year, they may think that it was nothing but trouble. But we know that even in the midst of hard times there are always things to be grateful for. So we are building a time capsule, to set the record straight! Bring in things that make you hopeful, that fill you with gratitude, and let’s celebrate the gifts of life together. We will have our annual “Breaking of the Bread,” too.

“Feast of the Senses” | Worship Associate Koreen Pagano
Kicking off the holiday season brings up a wellspring of memories tied to tradition, family, and events that shaped us. Join us in exploring how music, smells, and tastes hold some of the strongest ties connecting our present to our past.
