Sunday Gathering

October 30, 2022 @ 9:00 am - 12:00 pm

The Great Questions: What if We’re Wrong about Everything?

Our resident Guest Teacher Beth Buelow adds this question to the series of The Great Questions: What if We’re Wrong about Everything? Whoa! That should be an interesting talk! Jen Sygit returns with her unique style. She’s always a great musical guest. Charity McMaster has the meditation, so this week three women will lead the Gathering. Will you join us? It’s always good to greet each other in person, but if you can’t make it to Central Park Place*, you can also watch online!

*Another change! The City of Grand Haven has given Grand Haven Community Center a new name—Central Park Place! This will take some getting used to, but in our publications, we will try to make the change wherever needed. Just know that C3 hasn’t moved—just the name of the place we meet has been changed.

 Moment of Silence

Readings / Teaching: Beth Buelow

…the answer is not to turn inward, to retreat into competing factions, distrusting those who don’t look like you do, or worship the way you do, or don’t get their news from the same sources you do. We must end this uncivil war that pits red against blue, rural versus urban, conservative versus liberal. We can do this if we open our souls instead of hardening our hearts. If we show a little tolerance and humility.

 Joseph R. Biden, Jr., Presidential Inaugural Address, Jan 20, 202

Humility is what keeps us grounded in reality. It is also the quality that best ensures that the internal images that shape our lives – images that influence us as parents, spouses, professionals, spiritual seekers, and so forth – will be large enough to allow us to move freely in the world rather than cage us in. . .”
