Since we celebrated Mother’s Day this month, the Monday, May 20 (6:30 p.m.) Sacred Space meeting will focus on the feminine aspect of God and Margaret McConnell will lead the session. Bring a poem, reading, piece of art or something from nature that reflects the feminine aspect of God for you. Also, think of one woman–well-known, little known, or virtually unknown–whose memory you wish to celebrate. For more information, contact Charlotte Nichols or Adrienne Clements.
