What Have You Birthed in Your Life?

With Meg Roberts

Sunday, Mar 3 @ 4pm. In the Hall.

In celebration of International Women’s Day on March 8, we are exploring the idea of what we birthed in our lives. Some of us birthed children, others birthed projects, businesses, ideas, art, or things only you can describe. Think about what you have birthed and come hear from others as well as have an opportunity to share about your “baby!”

Join us for our monthly potluck after the service. Everyone is welcome!

Beatrix Potter’s world, and ours.

Sunday Mar  31 @ 4pm.  In the Hall.

Unitarians like to claim certain famous people as “our own”. Beatrix Potter is one such person - a naturalist, artist, business woman, farmer, and most famously, writer of children’s stories.   Story telling from her works, words about her life and work, and of course, an opportunity for imagining.

All ages welcome!    Hosted by Wendy McNiven
