Summer Solstice Ceremony June 19, 2016
Though we'll just be entering the throes of summer from a calendar perspective, during this Summer Solstice time the Earth will be shifting to a time of shortening days. It's a reminder for us to pause, take a breath, and focus on the rest of life that will also be experiencing this change. You're invited to gather together with us to formally and peacefully express our gratitude for all of the precious life on this wonderful planet that we live on. We'll be meeting at the Dayspring Church Farmhouse at 7:30 pm and then slowly & intentionally walking down into lushness of the creek valley. Once there, we will be sharing the Haudenosaunee Thanksgiving Address. There will be time for silence both before and after the Address. All, including children, are most welcome. Please let Wendy know (wendy.duke@comcast.net) if you plan to come. That way, if weather is questionable, she can contact you about whether the ceremony is still going to be taking place.

For Reflection

Though he works and worries, the farmer never reaches down to where the seed turns into summer. The earth grants.

-Rainer Maria Rilke, Sonnets to Orpheus
