Sundays on Zoom

Sunday, Sept 12, 10:30 AM  Rev Wanda & Joyce  “Water Ceremony”

Joyce Hein & Rev Wanda welcome everyone back to the virtual Fellowship with a Water Ceremony celebrating our travels (actual & virtual).  Joyce will host from the Fellowship building on Sunday morning with a symbolic bowl of water, so leave your water on a table in the Pease Parlor by 5 pm on Friday, Sept 10 if you’d like her to include yours!  If you need entry to the building, please contact Jim during his work hours, 3-5 pm.  You’re also welcome to share your water online if that works best.  AND bring your water story & any pictures you’d like to share on Sunday, 9/12.

 

Sunday, Sept 19, 4:00 PM  Rev Wanda Daniel   “Heart-Mind 101”

First Principle:  We affirm and promote the inherent worth and dignity of every person.

WHY is that principle so crucial these days?  HOW do we truly live this way?  WHAT does it mean for us on a day-to-day basis?  We’ll begin again, dive into the first principle and discover the ways this principle lives in our heart-minds!

 

Sunday, Sept 26, 10:30 AM.   Scott Prinzing. “Autumnal Equinox”

The Autumnal Equinox is the date when we mark the beginning of Fall.  It is the midpoint between the Winter Solstice and the Summer Solstice.

Many cultures throughout the world – the Northern Hemisphere in particular- have observations that mark this time of the solar calendar.  While not all carry the tradition of it as a specific point on the calendar, there are many harvest festivals – such as the Jewish Sukkot or Festival of Tabernacles – that are traditionally at the beginning of Autumn.  We will look at Sukkot and several others as we journey forward in our year around the Sun!

Ways In and Out of the Hermeneutic Circle”

In this lecture, Professor Paul Fry (Yale University, 2009) examines acts of reading and interpretation by way of the theory of hermeneutics. The origins of hermeneutic thought are traced through Western literature. The mechanics of hermeneutics, including the idea of a hermeneutic circle, are explored in detail with reference to the works of Hans-George Gadamer, Martin Heidegger, and E. D. Hirsch. Particular attention is paid to the emergence of concepts of “historicism” and “historicality” and their relation to hermeneutic theory.
