FROM THE ASC FRIENDS OF THE ARTS
The ASC Friends of the Arts has delayed the Members & Friends Art Exhibit to open in September. We would like your art work in hand by Sunday, August 15th at the lastest, to allow us time to hang in our Foyer for a September opening. A reception date will be scheduled for mid-September. We would love to exhibit your art work in any form: two & three dimensional work, poetry, photos, books and music recordings are welcome. Up top three pieces per person will be accepted. You may put your work up for sale, w/ a 20% commission going to the church; selling your work is optional. The exhibit will also be put online, so if you can provide a good photo of your work, that would be helpful (medium sized j-peg). If you would like to exhibit your work, please contact Ann Newsmith or Beth McKinney after June 15th at 802-579-6495 (text & voice messages) The exhibit will stay up until November.

Come join us even if you have not been before! Each time we meet is different and a little like a “stand alone” time. We encourage all new women newcomers to ASC to gather for simple refreshment and conversation. Bring your questions and share in our search for answers to Life’s Great Mysteries. You will find good company, warm hearts, and collective wisdom. Our gathering uses a modified Small Group model of check-in and discussion. Come a few minutes early so you can prepare yourself a cup of tea or coffee. Take a break from your busy life and gather with All Souls women. You deserve it! Check the church calendar for the next meeting. We usually meet the 2nd Saturday of the month at 9:15 to 11:00 or 11:30.

“Breathing in, I am Here. Breathing out, I am Home,” words of my dear teacher, Thay – Buddhist peace leader Thich Nhat Hanh. My Buddhist practice has transformed my life over the past almost twenty years, as I aspire to live and breathe into each moment. Our service will explore areas of Buddhist history, belief and practice, and Thay’s unique embrace of living and being that has guided my life.

QUOTE OF THE WEEK“When I say it’s you I like, I’m talking about that part of you that knows that life is far more than anything you can ever see or hear or touch. That deep part of you that allows you to stand for those things without which humankind cannot survive. Love that conquers hate, peace that rises triumphant over war, and justice that proves more powerful than greed.”
