Leadership Training - "Running an Effective Meeting" - Open to All
Monday, December 16, 7:00 p.m.
The Council of Committee Chairs is presenting the 2nd in a series of leadership training workshops, "Running an Effective Meeting," or, how to run a meeting that people will be glad to come back to again and again. Come and learn how to run a meeting that is effective, productive, fun and respectful (of people's time). Learn strategies that you can use at the Fellowship, at work, and for other activities you are involved in. The leaders will be Dixie Comeau and Terri Seppala.
Take the Food Stamp Challenge
How does it feel to be food insecure? And how well do the “safety nets” that exist assuage hunger? During December -- a month in which food is central to our celebrations and charitable giving-- the Social Justice Committee invites you to participate in the Food Stamp Challenge. The Challenge will give you a view of what life can be like for millions of low-income Americans. You will experience the difficulty of making food choices on a limited budget, and get a deeper sense of how difficult it is to avoid hunger, afford nutritious foods, and stay healthy with too few resources.
We ask you to take the Challenge for 5 days, living on $4.75 per day worth of food – the average food stamp benefit for New York. Participating households should use $4.75 per person x the number of people in their home x five days.

New Year’s Day – Labyrinth Walk and Social
On Wednesday, January 1st at 1:00 p.m. we will host a New Year’s Day Labyrinth Walk in our sanctuary. Join people from our congregation and the community who enjoy starting their year in this peaceful, meaningful way. Everyone brings a snack to share and we have a social time afterwards. This event is free and open to all.
We continue to have our weekly labyrinth walks on Thursdays at 1:30 p.m., and our next monthly walk will be Tuesday evening, December 10th at 7:00 p.m. “It is solved by walking.” (St. Augustine)
