The following two meditation sessions will be held in the living room over the summer:

“Enjoy the little things, for one day you may look back and realize they were the big things.”
Calling all Elders
The gift of elders is the long-practiced care for life. It is wisdom, persistence, and not allowing evil to operate in its habitual patterns. It is a solid sense of “enough,” and gratitude for life‘s goodness, showing a humble capacity to be part of the web of life.
It is evident in those who hold tragedy and beauty together, integrating life’s complex and difficult counterpoints within a strong heart that bears reality with love and moral clarity.

Volunteers needed for farm work
10 volunteer “farmers” needed for two work bees hoeing corn at Dale’s farm near Anola. The money from sale of this sweet, pesticide-free corn later this summer will be used to support refugees we are sponsoring.
Probable dates will be around June 15 to 18. Plan on a 4 hour shift plus travel time (about 45 minutes each way). Transportation to be arranged closer to the date.
Bring your own hoe if you have one, and food, water, sun hat, work gloves, bug spray & sunscreen. We’ll provide cooler with ice and drinks.
