Change Ourselves, Change the World

“If we could change ourselves, the tendencies in the world would also change. As a man changes his own nature, so does the attitude of the world change towards him. ... We need not wait to see what others do.”  
- Mahatma Gandhi

October Newsletter is here! Join in the celebration of 275 years!

Greetings Friends,

The October issue of the Judea Journal - our monthly newsletter - is now available by clicking HERE.  Past issues can be found in our archive

The Sunday church experience this month is going to be very interesting!  As part of our 275th birthday celebration, each of our services on Sundays will reflect a different period in our church's history - and some contemporary options later in the month that we have never done in this church.  You can read more about the details in the newsletter and in the announcement in the right hand sidebar.  The journey begins this Sunday.  Join us!

Blessing of the Animals in Steep Rock Preserve also helps to kick off this very busy month!  This newsletter issue is packed full of information that had to practically be shoe-horned (eek!  what is THAT??) into the pages.  Pull up a chair and kick back with a cup of hot chai or your favorite alternative to enjoy this crisp fall weather and have a good read.

Be sure to check out the Judea Journal for all the upcoming activities, inspirational stuff, and even a hint of the holidays with the annual Susan B Anthony Wreath Sale before the leaves are even off the trees!

(I hope you are) Basking in blessings every day,

Karen Esslinger
