September 24 - “Lay Your Burden Down” – Rev. Margie Allen
We’re in the middle of the Jewish High Holy Days. Rosh Hashanah ended last Friday and this Friday evening Yom Kippur, the Day of Atonement, begins. We lay our burden down and take a look. What can be mended, what left behind?

Our first meeting will be at 7:00 p.m. on Tues. Sept. 19 at the Fellowship. An excellent 10-minute video explaining the current state of church/state separation and its problems can be found here.

Come for peace, meditation and de-stressing. All are welcome. Bring a friend. Linda Mikell will facilitate this experience. This is an indoor walk, but you may choose to walk outside if the weather permits.
