Fall Festival Sunday
First Church Berkeley – Sun, Sep 24 • 10:00 am Sanctuary & Front Lawn All are invited to join in as First Church welcomes the new season with a Fall Festival Sunday on September 24 beginning at 10 am. The day will be a perfect opportunity to "try out" the First Church community if you are looking for a place for refreshment for your whole self! From worship through the “after-party” expect joy and celebration, including a bouncy house set up in the playground behind the church. Senior Minister Molly Baskette will preach and the service will include special music. Rumors are that the Ukulele Orchestra will perform. That Sunday will also mark the beginning of the fall Sunday School schedule which includes break-outs by age: Preschool (ages 3-5), Godly Play (K – 3rd grades) and the Bible Intro Class (4th – 6th grades). Children will attend the first part of the 10 am worship service with their parents and leave for Sunday School after the Children’s Sermon. Parents are invited to accompany their children to their new classrooms and then return to the Sanctuary when they are ready. The nursery will also be open throughout the service in Loper Chapel. A special activity area for parents and children will be set up as usual in the Hall of Entrance for those who wish to stay close by the service. For the “After-Party” which is our new name for the fellowship time after church, congregation members are invited to bring some potluck food to share. Musicians will gather to jam in the Cloister outside. Also, First Church’s Public Theologian in Residence Marvin K. White will hold his first “workship” from 11:45 to 1 pm.

Harvest of Peace
Shambhala Meditation Center of San Francisco – With the Sakyong Wangmo Harvest of Peace, held around the time of the autumn equinox, is an opportunity for our community to gather, hear teachings by Sakyong Mipham Rinpoche, and celebrate the riches of our local cultures and heritage. The Sakyong Wangmo will offer the Harvest of Peace address this year. It would be excellent to show our support by gathering together to hear her first Nyida Day address and celebrate the holiday together. As Harvest of Peace draws nearer, we are reminded of the Sakyong’s teachings in recent years on the importance of building community through food, conversation, and meditation. We look forward to enjoying good food and drink together, socializing, practicing together and hearing the Sakyong Wangmo’s address. The day will also include a simple Shambhala Sadhana Feast celebrated by the entire community. Harvest of Peace is also an important and appropriate time in the yearly cycle to celebrate generosity and growth and to fundraise to support the incredible work of our Centre - the core of which is helping to transform fear and aggression into wisdom and compassion. There will be a brief local fundraiser at the event where we will invite people to celebrate generosity by giving what they can and according to their inspiration to support our local situation. For a detailed schedule, please check our website. We will update there as specifics are confirmed.
