October  4th - My Stroke of Insight  (T&T Auction sermon)
~~ Rev. Eva Cameron, (Worship Associate TBA)

Each year at the Treats and Talents auction, I offer up a sermon based on a book of your choice.  Jan Gallagher was the winner of this auction sermon, and she selected the book My Stroke of Insight.  I hope you’ll join us for this journey into the workings of the mind, and what it means for each of us.  At the time of this writing, we don’t have the Annual Theme submissions in, but if I get one that fits, you’ll read about that in the Weekly Update.              

~Rev. Eva

October 11th - Covenanting Sunday
~~ Rev. Eva Cameron, (Worship Associate TBA)

We join together to share the promises we hold with each other, those which create our special and sacred community.  We will acknowledge this year’s Lay Ministers, and learn a bit about the origins of Covenantal Religious Communities.

October 18th - The Glory of Imperfection
~~ Bill Chene, Del Carpenter (WA)

Why are we all imperfect?  Is imperfection really such a bad thing?  Where would humanity be today if all life on earth started out perfect the first time?

October 25th - Purity, Contamination, and the Boundaries that Create Us
~~ Sue Hill, (Worship Associate TBA)

Why don’t we usually eat in the bathroom?  Why do all family members have their own toothbrushes?  Why is “cleanliness next to godliness”?  Join us for a talk about purity codes, taboos, and the boundaries that create the worlds we inhabit.

Remember the 60’s? - Hey all you groovy guys and gals, this is the Wolfman inviting you to step back in time for this year’s Treats and Talents Auction.  That’s right!  We’re tripping back to the 60’s for a night with Janis, Jimmy, Joan and Jefferson Airplane.  So come on board this magic carpet ride for a night of fun, trivia and great auction items.  Let your hair down, get out the beads, put some flowers in your hair and join us.

Social hour begins at 6:00 p.m.; auction starts at 7:00 p.m.  Refreshments and child care provided.

Caring Connection Committee

The Caring Connection is a loving and compassionate group of very active people who enjoy reaching out to help others.  Whether you are someone who needs a ride to the doctor, help around the house or just needs someone to talk to, we are here to help.  The Caring Connection is in need of more members.  We meet the first Sunday of every month at 11:30 a.m. right after the fellowship time.  The contact person for the month of October is Krista Saylor and her phone number is (319) 961-1901.

Coming up in October the Caring Connection chair term will be ending, and I will be stepping down.  If anyone on the Caring team would like to take on the chair position, please contact me at (319) 961-1901 or email <legiond13@gmail.com>.  The term is only six months.


Buddhist Path began a new book last month:  Ending the Pursuit of Happiness by Barry Magid.  All are welcome to join us each Thursday at 7:30 p.m. as we learn a bit about Buddhism, share how it relates to our own lives, chant and meditate.  Books are available for purchase.  Plans to organize childcare are still in the works.
