Wednesdays, beginning April 16, 6:30 - 9 pm

Spirituality for Seekers, Skeptics, Activists, Mystics and All Broken-Hearted Lovers of the Earth

Join our Minister for this series of sessions (a repeat from last year).  Sign-up at the church is required. 

Does the word "spirituality" carry a lot of baggage for you? The word "God?"  Do you have your own experience of mystery? Do you hunger for the healing of our broken planet? This course is a repeat of last year's popular course. It is a chance to journey with others who are seeking a more expansive understanding of spirituality. Each week will include some reading, some music, some conversation, and some practice. 

Fridays, beginning April 18 (see Adult Enrichment fmi), 7 - 9 pm

The New Universe and the Human Future: How a Shared Cosmology Could Transform the World

Nancy Ellen Abrams and Joel R. Primack, two cutting-edge thinkers—one a cultural philosopher and the other a leading astrophysicist—combine their abilities to present a new picture of the universe with critical relevance for our time in "The New Universe and the Human Future.” 

Paperback/Kindle versions available on Amazon ($10 - $13). Read introduction and Chapter 1 prior to first session. Sign up on the bulletin board in the foyer, or online. 

Facilitated by Beth Fitzgerald


Saturday, April 19, noon to 2 pm


Join "We The People Maine," Corporations are not people ~ Money is not speech - a petitioner carrier and volunteer workshop

 

Volunteer one to two hours on primary day, June 10, to sit at a table and collect signatures or go door to door to do the same; 80,000 are needed. The McCutcheon decision permits the ultra-rich to give $3,600,000 to candidates and Citizens United permits corporations to give unlimited dollars.  Direct our legislature to apply for an Article V convention to draft a constitutional amendment that says Corporations are not people. Questions or more information, please respond to  WeThePeopleMaine@aol.com.
