Judea Weekly for July 7 - Green Fair is Coming!!!


Just last year, I started to realize how much of a social event this great big Green Fair is - both the day of the fair AND all of the months and especially the days leading up to it.  As I write this, there are member and non-member volunteers buzzing around the church buildings and around town, performing their respective duties in all of the different areas: tag sale, books, boutique, auction, ladies accessories...  There are people at home baking pies and other goodies and still others running around picking up donations of flowers and other goods and gift certificates for our silent auction.  Many are dripping with sweat from working in this heat and humidity or dripping because they were working out in the rain.  And there are some that most people don't even see who are working hard to get the message out via print and online media.  It is quite an amazing thing and through it all, there is conversation, laughter, and yes, some shared commiseration about the weather and other bumps in the process.  But in all, quite a unique experience.  Whether you are part of the planning and prep, or maybe working the day of the fair or just attending as a guest, I hope you have had a chance to experience part of this amazing event and the community that makes it happen.  We hope you can come and enjoy the Green Fair with us this Saturday!

And if you are around on Sunday, Ellen Willert is including in the service a special time for blessing of the event and its conclusion.  Our Chinese visitors will be making a presentation during the service and then afterwards we will hold a pot luck picnic on the Green.  We hope you can come and bring along a salad to share.  See the announcement on the right for more information.

There are a few new announcements on our home page and on the list to the right.  Be sure to check them out.  And the summer issue of the Judea Journal is also available on our website resources pages, giving you a heads up on all the upcoming activities, inspirational stuff, and even things to look forward to in September!  (Hint... don't forget the water!!)
