Memoir Group

Memoir Group

Monthly Memoir Group led by Ruth Robinson in the Fireside Room.

"Write what you see." A holy writing prompt, long before the phrase got 150,000,000 hits in a search engine.

Alice Walker had a similar one that rescued me from many dry spells, an inspiration I found in her work years ago. She suggested picking up a photograph with personal meaning and starting with the words, "In this one…." It's an invitation to describe a world that only you could see. A world that doesn't exist, apart from your telling. 

Maybe God gives you the same holy prompt that John heard, long ago on Patmos. Do you see trouble? Write it. Beauty? Write that. Solidarity? Write that. Persecution? Write that, too. 

Maybe you're not so much for writing—so speak what you see, or draw what you see, or sculpt what you see. Maybe your "seeing" is with the ears or the taste buds instead of the eyes. Either way: take what you know, and share it. 

Because the kin-dom is always looking for your vision, to become complete.

Rev. Susan Hendershot

President of Interfaith Power & Light

Susan Hendershot, President of Interfaith Power and Light will present the compelling story of this national organization, founded here in California in 2000.

The mission of Interfaith Power & Light is to be faithful stewards of Creation by responding to global warming through the promotion of energy conservation, energy efficiency, and renewable energy. This campaign intends to protect the earth’s ecosystems, safeguard the health of all Creation, and ensure sufficient, sustainable energy for all.

Global warming is one of the biggest threats facing humanity today. The very existence of life – life that religious people are called to protect – is jeopardized by our continued dependency on fossil fuels for energy. Every major religion has a mandate to care for Creation. We were given natural resources to sustain us, but we were also given the responsibility to act as good stewards and preserve life for future generations.

What are faith communities to do? Come and learn at this special presentation.

Missions Board Meeting

Greetings all, I’m sending this out to all those who came to our last meeting ..and more. Thanks Sara, for taking the minutes March 24th. We got lots done at that meeting, setting dates for offerings, setting up a routine/rotation for Moments for the Planet and Moments for Mission in worship, scheduling Hygiene kits, learning about POP speaker series coming up – and we began a discussion about setting goals, choosing programs to focus the work of the Board. Our next meeting will be May 5th after church. Hope to see you all there. Tentative agenda follows:

May 5 Agenda:

• Re-visiting our Vision for who we are as a board

• Focusing our work: Looking at a comprehensive list of all we do and picking priorities for the remainder of the year. Part of the goal: Organize our work so opportunities to participate are clear to members of the congregation and anyone new who comes.

• Scheduling the rest of the offerings for the year.

• Discussing formation of an advocacy group that can participate “showing up” publicly to express our values – advocating for the planet and/or for vulnerable folks in our community.

• El Cerrito One World Festival booth on July 4

ACC Workshop: Homemade Cleaning Products

Spring Cleaning Coming to a House Near You

Spring Cleaning , by Linda Terrell 

Closet doors open,

Sweeper to adjust,

Housecleaning today,

Yes, spring cleaning is a must. 

 

Windows to wash,

Cabinets to clean,

Dust mallet to swish,

Even on outdoor screen.

 

What to choose from among the many bottles and potions and cans of cleaning products.  If you are like me, you have a stash of stuff, each one designed for a specific job.  Why is that, we might ask?  What if we had one or two products, earth friendly, cheap and above all, effective?

Please join us after worship on Sunday, 4/28, for a very short workshop on how to make your own products that just might do a better job at cleaning than a dozen or so of what are under your sink or in the garage right now.  And these will be guaranteed not to pollute your home or our earth.
