How would you live if you knew you would live forever?
What if you already are?
And what if your “forever” has a beginning and an end?

Contemplative Dialog
This Sunday, April 28th, 9:30-10:30 am

At our fourth Sunday meeting a topic will be announced at the session followed by 7 minutes of silent contemplation.  We will then share our thoughts.  Come join us for this open discussion where everyone’s opinion is welcomed and respected.  We have much to learn from each other and our discussions enable us to get to know each other better.

This program is open to all and we hope you can join us.  Bring a friend.  No reservations necessary.  Coffee and discussion - 9:30-10:30 am before service.

Fellowship Contribution Campaign

We Build on Foundations We Did Not Lay

We build on foundations we did not lay

We warm ourselves by fires we did not light

We sit in the shade of trees we did not plant

We drink from wells we did not dig

We profit from persons we did not know

This is as it should be.

Together we are more than any
one person could be.

Together we can build across the generations.

Together we can renew our hope and faith
in the life that is yet to unfold.

Together we can heed the call to
a ministry of care and justice.

We are ever bound in community.

May it always be so.

Rev. Peter Raible (1930-2004)
UU Minister, Seattle, WA
