Food for Thought

Our monthly, family-friendly suppers begin in the fall, taking place on Wednesday evenings in the Parish House.

Everyone is welcome to take part! Free childcare! Adult conversation! And you don’t have to cook! This is not a drill! This is really happening, people! EVERY FIRST WEDNESDAY OF THE MONTH!!

Mary Helen and Janet have pulled together a terrific line-up of coordinators for FPL’s “Food for Thought” evenings. The first one is October 2nd. We’ll gather for a meal all together – kids included – like the family we are. Then, the children will go and enjoy crafts and entertainments upstairs, while the adults are lead by Rev Jenny in a discussion about “Blessings.” (Sneak peek: Nov 6th focuses on raising independent children with Andy Clark presenting!)

Donations at the door encouraged: Adult $10, Children $5, Families max. $25.

No RSVP needed – come last minute if that’s your style.

2019/20 Dates:

October 2

This first supper will focus on the topic of blessings featuring a discussion guided by Reverend Jenny and a chance to talk together at our tables.

Child care will be provided in the Parish House second floor church school space from 6-7:15.

November 6

Join us for a spirited presentation and dinner discussion with Lincolnite & FPL member Dr. Andy Clark. Andy will cover the Free Range Child movement and the values and benefits that it provides to our youth – especially at a time of record levels of childhood anxiety and depression. There are many parenting books published about hot topics involving the Grit, Resiliency and Self-direction that children need in order to thrive. Come see how these tie in with the Free Range lifestyle! We will discuss strategies that we (parents, grandparents, educators, and community members) have employed and can employ in supporting each other and ultimately our children.
