Water Communion & Ingathering Potluck

Aug 31, 2023 | Beacon, News, Top News

As the seasons change we want to welcome everyone back to East Shore this September! On Sunday, September 10 we will celebrate this community with our annual Water Communion and Ingathering Potluck.

At 10:30 a.m., we gather to give thanks for having access to drinking water and for the bodies of water near us that allow us to refresh our bodies and souls. We recommit ourselves to defend, care for, and honor this sacred element on which our very lives depend. Join us as we bring together the waters that we have collected (from rivers, beaches, streams, or kitchen sinks) to pour into a common bowl, symbol of our Beloved Community.

Then, at 11:30 a.m., join us for the annual Ingathering Potluck (also know as Salmon Bake)! Please plan to stay after the service for a potluck and lunch! We will provide salmon and curry chickpea salad (vegan) and we ask you to provide sides and desserts. We also ask you to consider volunteering! We need cooks and people to help set up. We have great directions to follow, so it’s hands and people willing to give of themselves. To volunteer, please sign up here.
