Sunday, October 4, Michaelmas Festival, Potluck and Celebration - On this first Michaelmas Sunday, all first grade children are welcome to join the Sunday Service for Children for the very first time.  This is a very special moment in the spiritual life of the child standing at the altar for the very first time.  
We will begin at 9:15 am with singing followed by a Michaelmas story. This will prepare us to walk the Michaelmas Labarynth together and to encounter the Archangel Michael.  After the Children Service and The Act of Consecration of Man, we will have a community potluck,  followed by Games of Courage, Balance and Aim!

Friday, October 9, 7:30 pm - Health and Disease from Spiritual Perspective - A Talk by Wilfried Schubert, MD at Rose Hall.  What is the reason behind becoming afflicted by pain and disease? Is there a meaning in illnesses? How can we integrate illness in our biography?  Since 1992, Dr. Schubert has been working as an Anthroposophical physician in Cologne, Germany. In additions to his private practice, he mentors young physicians and is a regular lecturer at the Physicians' Conference at the Rudolf Steiner-Halde, Dornach, Schwitzerland.  Please click here for more details.
