n worship this Sunday, we will conclude our month-long exploration of what it means to be a people of abundance. Join us as we celebrate our annual intergenerational Stone Soup service where we are reminded that we can achieve when we work together! Bring your leftover Thanksgiving goodies or a dish to share for a Congregational Potluck Lunch following this short service. Children are welcome to participate, but childcare will be provided as well.
Noticing the abundance around us is clearly the work we are called to do. But one wonders if that's enough. It all depends on what you do after the noticing is done.
Sometimes there's a passivity to appreciation that leaves nothing changed. There's a big difference between appreciating the blessing of family and committing to sitting down together for dinner at least three or four times a week. It's one thing to notice the beauty that fills your own backyard; it's quite another to pull yourself out of the rat race so you have time to enjoy it.
This week we will be having a "coffeehouse style" service, where we discuss topics in small groups and then share insights. We will explore abundance and gratitude in this season of giving thanks.
