5:00 pmWe lift up our recognition as a Welcoming Congregation and celebrate LGBT History Month with aid of our friends at The Source LGBT Center of Visalia. In the summer of 1969, in Greenwich Village, New York City, agents of the New York Police Department’s Vice Squad descended on The Stonewall Inn, a notorious gay bar, to shut it down. But the raid did not go as planned: the intended victims fought back, and the aftermath gave rise to Gay Pride. Presentation by Arthur Ogawa.  See Welcoming Congregation below for more information.

October 22 
4:45 – Piano music with Ken Elias
5:00 pm Rev. Kathleen Scott presents – What Is Intuition?  There are many negative wise cracks about so-called “women’s intuition,” but within spiritual literature, much is said about the intuitive faculty and its value and use.  We will examine together a modern understanding of the function and value of intuition.

October 29
5:00 pm – 
Touchstones:  The Circle of Life.  Life has a way of moving in circles, bringing us back to places we didn’t expect and sometimes taking us away from those we do. Our seventh principle and sixth source reinforce the importance of the circle of life, both literally and metaphorically. In this service we will consider the circle of life and reflect upon those elements that most give our lives meaning. Presented by Janet Wood.  Harold Wood is Worship Associate.
