This is the season when earth is balanced on her axis and daylight and darkness are equal. The shifting light and the autumn colors make it easier for me to think about preparing for winter, and they also remind me that climate change is real – that I need to think about earth being balanced in this precarious place about to tip into patterns that are inhospitable to human life. I know that none of us can stop that shift alone, but in aggregate our actions can make a difference. This week I invite you to savor and save the planet in equal measure. Choose one thing to savor (sunrise or autumn color or sleeping with the windows open…) and one thing to fast from (plastic, your car, natural gas, electricity…) See if you can make the savoring and the saving come out even in your emotional checkbook….
Sunday Services are 8:30 a.m. in the library and 10:30 a.m. in the sanctuary unless otherwise noted. Nursery care, children’s and youth classes are concurrent with the 10:30 service.
