“Music and Sharings Along the Spiritual Way”
Celebration Starts at 10:30 AM
Sunday September 24, 2017
Sept 24 Jewish Holidays. Gary Schoenberg will bring us the flavor of the Jewish holidays (and maybe of apples and honey!) They are Rosh Hashanah (sometimes called the Jewish new year) Sept. 20-22 and Yom Kuppur (Day of Atonement) Sept. 30. Not confirmed yet, but singer/song writer Deva Troy may play a musical role this day!
Upcoming Celebration Programs
Oct 1 Rev. Gary Culp Here for One Sunday Only! Gary (no Jennifer this year), will add a brief visit to Doylestown, PA to his summer rambles before heading to the beautiful Pacific coast of Mexico to winter over with Jennifer at their home in Saulita. Jennifer can't come because of scheduling involved in gaining permanent resident status in Mexico (which Gary already has). Gary's had some healing challenges since their car accident and now faces a knee replacement in November. Details of his celebration are yet to come, but Denny Daikeler will be part of it--as always.
Oct 8 Walking Together in Love and Spirit. Rev. Joni Ben Nacef and Rev. Danny Moore will explore the challenging experience of coming to understand each other's religion, overcoming their own fears and biases and finding real connection in spirit. Can we learn to love the "lover of God" in each other? Isn't "learning to walk together in love and spirit" what we are here to do? Joni and Danny are both interfaith ministers ordained at the School of Sacred Ministries.
Oct 15 Discovering the Healing Jesus. Ted O'Brien willspeak regarding his new book, An Altar Boy Goes East: Discovering the Healing Jesus. He will also lead an afternoon workshop. More details to come.
Oct 22 To be decided.

He is the author of One Soul, One Love, One Heart the Sacred Path to Healing All Relationships, and also authored the critically-acclaimed books Awakening from Grief and When Prayers Aren’t Answered.

Pebble's music comes from almost every source, from sacred chants to folk, rock, jazz and pop. Lyrics tend to focus on personal and community growth, on peace and on reaching out to others, rather than the standard songs of worship in most church hymnals. We celebrate life with our music! Our pianists are often joined by other musicians; if you play an instrument or sing, please join us. Singers are invited to stand up with us and lend their voices to our informal choir. All you need to do is come early on Sunday morning to see what songs we’re doing. Join us up front to share your talent. You are part of a dynamic, touching, and vital dimension of our Sunday celebration. If you're musically inclined, we'd like to hear from you. Also, if there’s a special song that you’ve found inspiring, and you would like to sing or have us try it, please get in touch with us.
