We Are a Welcoming Congregation
August 9th John Bates - Views on the Intersection of Science and Spirit. John Bates is the author of seven books and a contributor to seven others, all of which focus on the natural history of the Northwoods. J
August 23rd Richard Olson - Afterlives and Underworlds. Myths about afterlives and underworlds go back to primal civilizations. Often these myths offer insight into the cultures that have created them. While we may not all share the same beliefs, and at the risk of generalizing, we tend to have a common understanding of what people mean when they refer to Heaven and Hell. But could billions of people be wrong?
September 6th Mary Beth O’Halloran - Everyday Mindfulness. Even people who think it would be good to meditate regularly don’t always follow through. The Buddhist practice of mindfulness (vipassana) and some Western traditions offer ways to meditate while eating breakfast and washing the dishes.

PEACE POLE update
The Woodruff Town Board voted Tuesday night to allow us to place a Peace Pole in the Veteran's Park by the Woodruff Post Office. The pole has been ordered and should arrive in 6-8 weeks. We are on the agenda of the Minocqua Town Board for permission to place a Peace Pole in the Veteran's Park at the corner of Highway 51 and Front Street. It was also suggested that a Peace Pole be placed at the Woodruff Cemetery on Highway 51. We are on the Woodruff Town Board agenda for permission to do that. The Lac du Flambeau Veteran's Group has also indicated that we can place a Peace Pole in their Veteran's Park. Both the Minocqua Morning Rotary Club and Minocqua Noon Rotary Club have been asked to be a part of this as will the members churches of the Lakeland Ministerial Association. We may have these by September 21st which is the United Nations International Day of Peace. As the pole at our Fellowship says, "May Peace Prevail on Earth".
