Kaleidoscope – Oct. 28, 2017

Our Kaleidoscope pagan group will gather at church at 6 p.m. Saturday, Oct. 28 for Samhain (sa-win), Year’s Ending.

The veil between the worlds of the living and the dead grows thin. Now is the time to remember those who have passed, and explore within ourselves those changes we need or want to make in our lives.

Please bring small mementos of those you have lost for the altar, and, if you so desire, feel free to make a Samhain vow for the coming year during the ritual.

The group will join in ritual, followed by a potluck and friendship. All are welcome, no matter what their personal paths.

Harvest Supper – Nov. 11, 2017

Church members and friends and their children are invited to join us at 6 p.m. Saturday, Nov. 11 for the Annual Harvest Supper sponsored by our Green Sanctuary Team. We’ll share delicious food and enjoy entertainment. Local beer and wine will be available for a donation.

As was the case last year, the supper will be a potluck. There is no need to sign up or buy a ticket. Everyone is welcome – just bring a dish to share, and try to use locally produced ingredients from our surrounding area or other parts of Missouri as much as possible.

We will be providing information on good places to obtain ingredients, including the Columbia Farmer’s Market, which will be open Saturdays through November.

This is a family friendly event, so plan to bring your kids!

– Kyna Byerly, coordinator
