Side with Love – February 3-28: Children’s Books

This February we will be promoting reading by collecting children’s books for our side with love collection. Children need books available that represent and promote the lives of all children, so books with diverse characters and themes are greatly welcomed. Books will be donated at the end of the month to Golden Opportunity. Golden Opportunity is a non-profit in Ithaca that provides quality academic support from experienced educators for all students in the community. So bring your books this sunday

February 17th- “What Does Faith Look Like?” – Rev. Margaret Weis

If faith is putting our values into action, what does that look like? How can we see, taste, touch, smell and hear that we are living our lives with faith? This multigenerational Sunday will invite you to bring your ideas, hopes and dreams and put them into action.

Possible Ponderings

-If you had to define what you believe using only six words, which would you choose?

-How are you intentionally living to be your best self? What communities, people, practices, etc. help you do so

-Do something good for someone else this week. Then journal about that experience for five minutes.

-How are the ideas of “faith” and “belief” different?
