*Wednesday Night Gathering: each week at 7 pm (NOTE the new time). This is an informal meeting for sharing ideas and ourselves. Your children are welcome, but you will need to help supervise them as we have no childcare. Come and enjoy the fellowship. On August 9, Gayle Gustin will share will us information regarding The Writing Road to Reading, by Romalda Spalding. It is “the answer to the problem of illiteracy.”
*Tuesday Movie Night—This monthly activity will occur again on August 8 at 7:00 PM.  This movie is the original Stanley Kubick movie “Dr. Strangelove: How I Learned to Stop Worrying and Love the Bomb”.  Although it was filmed in the sixties and is a dark comedy, in which the great Peter Sellers plays four different roles, much of the content is still relevant today.  Discussion will follow the film. Bring your own popcorn/snacks. Water will be provided.

Readings from July 30 Service (some asked that these be shared, so I’m sharing them with everyone)–
Opening Words:
This is what you shall do; Love the earth and sun and the animals, despise riches, give alms to every one that asks, stand up for the stupid and crazy, devote your income and labor to others, hate tyrants, argue not concerning God, have patience and indulgence toward the people, take off your hat to nothing known or unknown or to any man or number of men, go freely with powerful uneducated persons and with the young and with the mothers of families, read these leaves in the open air every season of every year of your life, re-examine all you have been told at school or church or in any book, dismiss whatever insults your own soul, and your very flesh shall be a great poem and have the richest fluency not only in its words but in the silent lines of its lips and face and between the lashes of your eyes and in every motion and joint of your body.”
–Walt Whitman
Closing Words–
I expect to pass through this world but once. Any good thing, therefore, that I can do or any kindness I can show to any fellow human being let me do it now. Let me not defer nor neglect it, for I shall not pass this way again.”
–Stephen Grellet
French-born Quaker Minister
