Summer has arrived, we will spend a considerable amount of time outdoors so we ask that you provide your children with ample sun protection; sunscreen and hats.
“Please pick up your children from the Summer Sunday Program staff by 11:15 a.m., after the service. Everyone is invited to stay and play in the playground and visit, if you so desire.
In the Multi-Age K-5th grade classroom (With your permission and our kid’s willingness) Jamil will be continuing a field test of meditations, activities, and multimedia resources that may eventually be used in a Buddhist UU curriculum for children.
10 a.m. K-5: Fiona Freeman-Grundei will continue our Buddhism UU series, this week we will discuss community or Sangha. Buddhist believe there are three reliances in life; the teacher (one who shows the truth), the teachings (science and logical reasoning) and community. We have discussed the historical Buddha and his teachings; this Sunday we will discuss how our UU fellowship can be a safe place to question and learn.
a. Brief meditation session
b. Watch a portion of the film began last week by Pentamedia Graphics Ltd. titled “The Legend of Buddha.” http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=sdUJrtCbZqM
c. Discuss Sangha and how this fellowship is a place where we practice, question and discover our faith.
d. Make a sand mandala (traditional artistic depiction of community) which depicts our fellowship, family and the world community.
10 a.m. Preschool/ Nursery: Emily Soder and Juliette Mettes will provide childcare, games and much love for our preschool and nursery children.
