Ingathering Service: Gathering Our Expectations Together

When we dare to have our individual and our collective expectations, we also dare to hope and to be changed. In this annual Ingathering Service, we will take individual and collective responsibility for shaping our life together as a congregation in this new congregation year. As part of our service, we will have a Gathering of the Waters Ritual. Please bring a small amount of water from a special place or even your own home to pour into our common bowl. Your water can represent any ONE of the following:

  • A place that you’ve experienced this summer and what it means to you
  • A “life storm” (minor or major) that you are navigating
  • A “wellspring” in your life: what nurtures and sustains you
