JULY 12-The Preciousness of Creation - Inspired by the recent encyclical on the environment of Pope Francis, this celebration focuses on the preciousness of the natural world.  Led by Rev. Rosalind Cauffman, it will include excerpts from the encyclical, a reading of St. Francis' Canticle of Brother Sun, songs about the beauty of the earth, and a shamanistic-like true story from Gretchen Altabef that arose out of her encounters with beings of the natural world.  Gretchen and Andy Wright will also report briefly on the Pebble Garden. Bill Mettler will give a short presentation about his recent sojourn in the nation’s capital with the Citizens Climate Lobby where he pursued his "advocacy adventures for the natural world."

 

JULY 19- The Way of the Open Hand.  Jeff Padawer and his associates in the Night Sky Sangha present a program titled The Way of the Open Hand.  Jeff writes, “We take ourselves sufficiently seriously to have opinions, beliefs, practices, and choices. We strive to adopt and cultivate the best opinions, beliefs, practices, and choices so our lives will be joyful and successful and meaningful. Our religious and secular conditioning tells us that these privileges are essential to our well-being and even our survival.

“We rarely question the most fundamental ingredients or symptoms of consciousness. We tend to skip over the profundity of being and presume ourselves to suffer from a vast insufficiency that we must heal through remediation, craving, and accumulation.

“At the root of experience we can consent to a non-stop symphony of texture and feeling and swirling thought suggesting meaning and explanation and cause and consequence. Our actual experience is without duration, though curiously persistent. We experience wonder with no effort, transcendence with no origin, joy with no cause; and the thinking hijacks our bliss and condemns us to time and individuation.

“Perhaps it would be an exciting experiment to rest in one’s own presence completely free from opinions, beliefs, practices, and choices? How might it feel to relish the gift of being with no reference, no past, no future, no need for relevance, nothing to defend, nothing to seek, without anticipation or separation?

 

“Let’s find out.”

 

July 26 -  Rev. Gary Culp returns to lead celebrations until the end of August on the tantalizing theme of “Science & Fiction.” Stay tuned!

Music

Pebble's music comes from almost every source, from sacred chants to folk, rock, jazz and pop. Lyrics tend to focus on personal and community growth, on peace and on reaching out to others, rather than the standard songs of worship in most church hymnals. We celebrate life with our music! Our pianists are often joined by other musicians; if you play an instrument or sing, please join us. Singers are invited to stand up with us and lend their voices to our informal choir. All you need to do is come early on Sunday morning to see what songs we’re doing. Join us up front to share your talent. You are part of a dynamic, touching, and vital dimension of our Sunday celebration. If you're musically inclined, we'd like to hear from you. Also, if there’s a special song that you’ve found inspiring, and you would like to sing or have us try it, please get in touch with us.
