SPIRIT AND PRACTICE


Earth-Centered Covenant Group

This covenant group is for all folks who find their spirituality and religious beliefs closely connected to nature. We will meet monthly on the second Tuesday to share our thoughts on theological questions and discuss ways in which our beliefs inform our lives. We will also enjoy potluck dinners and conduct rituals to celebrate the Pagan holidays together, honoring nature’s cycles of life. Note: In place of the regular discussion, on Tuesday, March 10 members of this group are invited to join the Full Moon Night hikers (see page 13).

Passover Seder
