Upcoming Event: Spiritual Parenting

Thursday, Nov. 14, 2019, 5:30-7pm | Donaldson Room
Margit and Jenny will lead a heartfelt conversation about how to bring the spirit home. We’ll talk a little history and theory, and move quickly to practices that you may like to incorporate into your family life… from morning blessings and nightly graces, to new traditions and holiday observances. Please bring your favorite ideas. Come and add some new plays to your parenting playbooks! All ages dine and chat in spirit together from 5:30 to 6ish; then there is childcare while the adults continue the conversation. Pizza, salad, cider for dinner.

Eight participants needed in order to run (no maximum, open to members and non-members!). Deadline to sign up is Nov. 14 at noon. Email sarah@fplincoln.org to sign up. We will let you know if the program will run by 1pm on 11/14.

Children’s Book List: Summer 2019

To accompany our adult read of Waking up White, our DRE Margit Griffith has identified books for children and youth that are available at the Lincoln Library so families may share in this discovery and discussion.
