Love Feast Thursdays


Love Feast Thursdays

The third Thursday Love Feast will resume, September 21st (oh, look! It’s the Equinox!). Each month through May we will gather on the 3rd Thursday for dinner at 6pm, Vespers at 6:30, and an activity at 7pm. Soup or chili (always gluten-free and vegan) is provided; feel free to round out the meal with contributions of bread, salad, dessert, etc. No RSVP needed and no cost – just show up! This month we will do some drumming and welcome the Autumnal Equinox.

Third Thursday of each month!   

On the Menu: Soup or chili (always gluten-free and vegan) is provided; feel free to round out the meal with contributions of bread, salad, dessert, etc. No RSVP needed and no cost – just show up!

What happens at Love Feast? First, we meet at 6pm for dinner with friends. There is always a hot entrée (soup or chili – dietary restrictions welcome) and folks bring bread, salad, fruit, or other items to round out the meal. It’s not a potluck and it’s ok to just show up for dinner without a ‘dish’. Around 6:30 we move into the Chapel for an informal vesper service. The atmosphere is intimate as we share a reading, speak about our lives, and restore our spirits in this midweek time of reflection. No big sermons or complicated services – just friends joined together.  At 7:00 we return to the Emerson Room for an activity.  Love Feast: come for all of it, come for some of it, just come and spend some time with friends!

6pm – Light Dinner;  Feel free to bring food and beverages to round out the meal.

6:30pm – Family Friendly Vespers (a quiet service of mediation, music, and connection)

7:00pm – Activity

Come for dinner or come for vespers or come to drumming or come to all!

 

May our chalice burn all through the night; may our hearts be open, and may our minds be still; may our truth be spoken, and may our lives fulfill this promise… the promise of peace.” (Hal Walker)
