JOYS and SORROWS & COFFEE HOUR
Sunday, May 31st – 11:30 am (on Zoom)
Following the regular time slot for our 10:30 Sunday morning service, we will hold a “Joys and Sorrows” online check-in, where everyone has a chance to share our worries and sorrows, as well as our joys and sources of happiness, without questions or discussion. This will be followed by a “Coffee Hour” when we can ask questions, and delve deeper into conversation, if we choose. Join us at 11:30 am by clicking the Zoom link which was emailed to you on Friday and/or Saturday by our Fellowship Office Administrator. Instructions on how to join a Zoom gathering are available here.

Hymn: Video Link “We Shall be Known” by the “How We Thrive” Virtual Choir
We shall be known by the company we keep,
By the ones who circle round to tend these fires.
We shall be known by the ones who sow and reap
The seeds of change, alive from deep within the earth
It is time now, it is time now that we thrive.
It is time we lead ourselves into the well.
It is time now, and what a time to be alive!
In this Great Turning we shall learn to lead in love.
In this Great Turning we shall learn to lead in love. (sing twice from the beginning, and sing the last 2 lines again at the end.)
