Sunday 20 September, 10.30 – 11.30 am: Harvest Festival (in church and on Zoom)

“In this sanctuary we harvest bushels of strength for one another,
and offer our crop with the hands of compassion and generosity.
May we be grateful for the ways we nourish and uplift each other,
For it is the sharing of this hallowed time together that sustains us.”
Katie Gelfand

Saturday 19 September, 7 – 8 pm: Earth Spirit Circle – Autumn Equinox (online via Zoom)

You are cordially invited to join the Unitarian Earth Spirit Network on Zoom to celebrate the Autumn Equinox – threshold of the dark half of the year – a time when we pause to reflect on the year’s harvest, finding balance in our lives, and preparing for the rest and renewal of winter. We will celebrate with words, music, meditation, and discussion on the theme of rest and renewal. Our hour together will end with a “just a minute” Eisteddfod – when you are invited to share, in one minute, if you wish, anything that has inspired you on the themes of the autumn equinox – a poem, a song, a creative art project, a recipe, a memory, etc. – the choice is yours. All welcome. Please email minister@chorltonunitarians.org for the Zoom meeting details.
