Fall Equinox on Saturday, September 23
Ritual 6:00pm, Magical Arts 3:30pm
Sylvan Sanctuary members gather to celebrate this second time in the year that we seek balance for our lives as we move more deeply into the dark half of the year and begin to feel the shift of the earth away from the Sun.
Ritual begins at 6:00, with shared snacks and fellowship afterwards. Ritual attire is welcome but not required.
Childcare will be provided. All ages also welcome to the Magical Arts of the Crafty Pagan that begin at 3:30pm.
UUCG Book Club Resumes on Tuesday, September 26 at 7:00pm
All are welcome to read & discuss The Dinner: A Novel by Herman Koch.
Synopsis:“A darkly suspenseful, highly controversial tale of two families struggling to make the hardest decision of their lives — all over the course of one meal. It’s a summer’s evening in Amsterdam, and two couples meet at a fashionable restaurant for dinner. Between mouthfuls of food & over the polite scrapings of cutlery, the conversation remains a gentle hum of polite discourse — the banality of work, the triviality of the holidays. But behind the empty words, terrible things need to be said, and with every forced smile & every new course, the knives are being sharpened. Each couple has a fifteen-year-old son. The two boys are united by their accountability for a single horrific act; an act that has triggered a police investigation and shattered the comfortable, insulated worlds of their families. As the dinner reaches its culinary climax, the conversation finally touches on their children. As civility and friendship disintegrate, each couple shows just how far they are prepared to go to protect those they love.”
