Friendly Pursuits: 250th Anniversary...

On September 21 (time TBA), Friendly Pursuits will be sponsoring a day at the 250th anniversary of the founding of the Moravian community in Hope, New Jersey. It promises to be a grand day, with a huge parade, people in period costumes, food stands, tours of historic buildings, and fun activities. Any congregant interested in joining us is cordially invited. Hope is only a few miles into New Jersey and is a beautiful village. If you've never been there, it's worth the visit.

Lunch & Class: "A Wisdom Way of Knowing"

Based on the book A Wisdom Way of Knowing by Cynthia Bourgeault, this class, led by Rev. Tillie Chase, will give attendees the opportunity to explore wisdom as a practice of Spiritual Formation.  This objective will be accomplished by experiencing seven disciplines that are used in Spiritual Formation including Centering Prayer, Lectio Divina, Scared Chanting and Movement, and Walking a Labyrinth.  In each case we will be given the opportunity to discover how each of these disciplines can open our hearts to the Divine in each of us. Join us Sunday, September 22, 2019; meet in Fellowship Hall.  We will come together following worship to share a meal together and then spend about an hour and a half learning about a different practice each month.  The class will meet on the fourth Sunday of each month  allowing each of us time to experience the practices and come to the next session prepared to reflect on what we have learned about the previous practice and to learn a new one.
