Bucket of Hope items needed for the William County Children's Advocacy Center: Chips, goldfish crackers, cookies, nuts, anything you think a child would like
A Note from Linda:
Theologians speak of the balance between theory and praxis: The word "theory" (from the Greek word meaning "viewing" or "contemplating") can refer to a way of looking at the world and statements of principles. Praxis (from the Greek word meaning "action" or "practice") is a term used for a combination of action and reflection which seeks transformation. Theory without practice is said to be empty; practice without theory is blind. This fall we have been addressing what many think of as life's "Big Questions:" What kind of human being is worth being? What kind of world is worth inhabiting? These questions have been explored within the larger context of what constitutes a flourishing life. Last Sunday we made a pivot in our inquiry—switching from theory to practice, grounding our inquiry of what constitutes a flourishing life in a concrete practice designed to help us grow not only in our awareness of God's presence in our daily lives, but also in our discernment of where and how we are being called to flourish. This Sunday we will look at a complimentary practice—a practice, anchored in ancient wisdom teachings and designed—in the true spirit of the word "practice"—to facilitate transformation. This will be a very special Sunday at our church: not only will we gather as a community and explore life's "Big Questions," but we have a special treat—an ensemble choir from Unity Church of the Hill's Inspiration choir will be singing for us. I hope you will join us! With much love, Linda
Theory without practice is said to be empty;
practice without theory is blind.

The Bucket of Hope:
Our Bucket of Hope for October through December will be The Williamson County Children's Advocacy Center. They support children who have suffered abuse through Family Advocacy, Counseling, Interviews, Exams and Outreach Trainings. They are asking us to fill their cupboards with individually wrapped snacks for kids. Chips, goldfish crackers, cookies, nuts, anything you think a kid would like.
We now have an ongoing collection for the Ronald McDonald House. Keep those tabs coming! We have filled one container so far. Let's help them get those expenses paid.
