Ingathering/Water Communion – Rev. Greg Chute

We’ll inaugurate our new Fall Season Theme of “An Examined Life” by asking everyone to bring in Sacred or Special Water to bless our community during the service. The invitation is to reflect on what makes something “Sacred” or “Special?” and what blessings we would want for our community.

Musar – Rabbi Peggy Deprophetis

The Jewish practice of Musar focuses on living a more conscientious life and being aware of the world around you and your responsibilities to that world. It helps us to become more of a “mensch,” a person of integrity and honor.
