    A Crime of Passion

    Rev. Laura Shennum

    Celebrant: Chris Rader

    Emotions are important to how we live our lives and enter into relationships. What happens when those emotions are out of control? Our society sees out of control emotions as a negative. When can passionate feeling be a positive in our lives and not a crime?

    10:30am Service: Hearing with more than Our Ears

    Speakers:
    Deb Miller & Sharon Page
    What is Deep Listening?  Susan McHenry describes it like this: “Deep listening is more than hearing with our ears, but taking in what is revealed in any given moment with our body, our being, our heart.” What is the difference between listening and deep listening? Why would we want to do it?  We will be exploring these questions and more, so bring your open and listening hearts and minds as we explore Deep Listening.

    10:30am Service: When are We Called to Listen?

    Rev. Laura Shennum
    Celebrant: Chip Balling
    We love to share our stories and find ways to connect with others. However, there are times in our lives when we need to silence our own voice to hear that of someone else. This means not only silencing our vocal voice, but also the critical voice inside our heads. By opening ourselves to truly listen to another, we can find a path to our own soul.

    10:30am Service: The Divine Is Calling: Are You Listening?

    Rev. Laura Shennum
    Celebrant: Deb Miller
    With the constant flow of information at our fingertips, it is hard to find times of silence in our days. However, sometimes silence can offer insights not available through other resources. We will explore the wisdom of silence through lessons from the Quakers.
