Taize Eucharist & Sound Bath | Dec 10 at 5:30 pm
On December 10th, following the 5:30 P.M. Taize service, Jim Morgan will share his collection of singing bowls in an unique sound experience, created for meditation and relaxation. A "sound bath" is a meditative experience using sound waves produced by singing bowls, chimes, percussion, and other instruments. Using frequency and vibration, the listener is invited to simply be present (seated or reclined), focus on breath, and clear one's mind. It is an invitation to discover our deeper self and connect with the divine.
Donate Chunky Soups with pop tops!
December's donation of the month is Campbell's Chunky Soup with pop top lids! Any brand will do - just look for soups that are hearty, chock full of nutrients and easy to eat with that pop top lid! These soups are favorites among many of our clients. We love to add them to our weekly pre-packed bags of food, to snack bags for our guests living in group homes and they also make an easy meal for those who are unhoused. Thanks for donating the comfort & warmth of hearty soup!
