Weekly Tai Chi Chih (A Gentle Form) with Mary Ann
n newcomer, Mary Ann Litfin, for an introduction to Tai Chi Chih! Tuesdays at 10:00 am, in the Fellowship Room, downstairs at church......all are welcome! This derivation of the martial art form of Tai Chi Ch'uan was developed by American, Justin Stone, to provide an art that is easier to learn and perform. Mary Ann leads each move as we stand in a circle facing each other, seeing it as an opportunity to invite Spirit into our midst. Desired outcomes are improved balance, mind-body-soul connection and a lovely opportunity to relax and be with beautiful people!
People's Book Club
People's Book Club is open to the wider community! We aim to read books that matter from diverse genres, topics and authors. We discuss each book across 2 gatherings. Pastor Clare facilitates.
Consider joining us for our 2-part discussion of Glennon Doyle's Untamed!
This progressive Christian author is a member of the United Church of Christ. She touches on themes of faith and spirit in her memoir. An activist, speaker, and thought leader, Doyle is also the founder and president of Together Rising, an all-women led nonprofit organization that has revolutionized grassroots philanthropy—raising over $25 million for women, families, and children in crisis. Doyle is married to American Olympian soccer player Abby Wambach.
Synopsis: Soulful and uproarious, forceful and tender, Untamed is both an intimate memoir and a galvanizing wake-up call. It is the story of how one woman learned that a responsible mother is not one who slowly dies for her children, but one who shows them how to fully live. It is the story of navigating divorce, forming a new blended family, and discovering that the brokenness or wholeness of a family depends not on its structure but on each member’s ability to bring her full self to the table. And it is the story of how each of us can begin to trust ourselves enough to set boundaries, make peace with our bodies, honor our anger and heartbreak, and unleash our truest, wildest instincts so that we become women who can finally look at ourselves and say: There She Is.
Our People's Book Club is a wonderful way to invite people in the wider community to engage with us. Please share the image above on social media or via email. Please print the the poster and hang it up at your favorite coffee shop, gym, or other local spot (click here to print a pdf).
