Third Monday of the month (December 18) 6:30 pm
Compassion is much more than a message or a current fad; it is a way of life that needs to be nurtured, rejuvenated and affirmed. We offer the opportunity to meet with like-hearted people who seek to live a compassionate life too. Each month we will explore different themes around compassion. You will be invited to share compassion with yourself, others and the world through facilitated contemplative practices such as: guided meditation, art work and movement.

on the Advent and Christmas Scriptures
(Saturday, December 2) 10 am-12 pmNOON
Lions lying down with lambs, swords fashioned into plowshares, an immaculate conception, angels singing and shepherds worshiping. If you were to step back from your familiarity with these stories you might wonder what in the world is happening. Join us for a morning of exploration and reflection into the Advent and Christmas scriptures. You won’t be disappointed.
Facilitator: Sister Jean Anne Zappa, OSU

One of the most renowned pieces of English sacred music, Handel’s Messiah has been performed across the world for more than 250 years. Composed in only three weeks, the work has undergone numerous revisions and re-orchestrations since its premiere performance in 1742. The work focuses on the central beliefs of Christianity from the Old Testament prophecies of the coming of the Messiah to the New Testament Gospel stories of the birth, death and resurrection of Jesus Christ. Originally associated with Easter, Messiah has become a Christmas tradition with selected sections performed.
Composer George Frideric Handel personally conducted more than 30 performances of Messiah, many of which were benefits for the Foundling Hospital. Handel’s performances of Messiah raised so much money for charity that one biographer noted, “Messiah has fed the hungry, clothed the naked, fosterd the orphan… more than any other single musical production in this or any country.” Another wrote, “Perhaps the works of no other composer have so largely contributed to the relief of human suffering.”
These performances of Messiah are sponsored by Blue Grass Motorsport.
