Gratitude: The Transformative Power of Giving Thanks
Thursdays, October 4- November 8, 10 am- noon

Focusing on Diana Butler Bass’ newest book, two discussion sessions will be offered this fall at Memorial UCC.  In the forward to the companion “7-Day Guide to Gratitude,” Bass notes that, “Writing Grateful changed my life in surprising ways, especially in regard to the spiritual practices that have become important to me. I discovered that even in difficult times, gratitude can still frame our days, making us stronger and more able to face personal challenges and work on behalf of the common good.”

First Friday Fellowship
November 2nd at 11:30 a.m.
The theme for this meeting is Remembering Our Loved Ones during the Holidays. Chris Rode, a social worker and member of Memorial UCC, will be speaking on “Grief During the Holidays”. Bring something that was or is a tradition in your holiday meal for a potluck lunch, along with the recipe to share. There is a sign-up sheet in the narthex for you to indicate what you will bring to the potluck.
Doctor Who and Theology
Third Friday of each month starting at 6:30 p.m.
Next gathering will be November 16th.

Scripture and Scones
Wednesdays from 8 to 9 a.m.
Every week, a group of folks gather in our library to look at the Scripture texts that will be used the following Sunday. These are often very lively discussions — and the baked goods and coffee aren’t bad either. Anyone is welcome to join at any time.
