Sunday, November 11, 2018: Interdependent Web [postponed from 14 Oct]

Seven Principles Wheel

Definition of interdependence

1 : the state of being dependent upon one another : mutual interdependence of the two nations’ economies … a form of symbiosis, of close mutual interdependence of two species of organisms.— Marston Bates … the deep psychological interdependence between ourselves and those we love.— Judith A. Savage … understood the interdependence of mental, physical, and spiritual health.— Donald N. Levine But plants happen to grow in these little universes we call ecosystems, where they are sustained by complex webs of interdependency with fungi, microbes, animals, and other plants.— Kenneth Brower

2 : a mutually dependent relationship Growing global interdependencies further muddy the debate, making it harder to know who “we” are and what “our” national interests really are.— Peter H. Schuck There are complex interdependences among these factors …— Victor H. Benenberg

 

We would love to have you come worship with us.

Our 7th and newest principle is “Respect for the interdependent web of all existence of which we are a part.” We often talk more about nature than the “we are a part”, and the interdependence of people, countries, life, the universe, and everything. Lisa deGruyter will share some thoughts on that.

Our services are Sundays at 11 a.m. at the Progressive Women’s Association Event Center, 305 Washington Ave. in downtown Clarksburg, behind the Courthouse. There are classes for children and adults 10 to 10:45 am, and a coffee gathering before the service. More about us.

Classes and worship are replaced by Spiritual Outings on the first Sunday of each month during the summer, with brief worship, a potluck picnic, and outdoor activities. The schedule is in the sidebar.

Children are welcome.  There is childcare and an activity for young children during the service.

The building is wheelchair accessible, with an accessible restroom.

On Care for Our Common Home

“Beginning in the middle of the last century and overcoming many difficulties, there has been a growing conviction that our planet is a homeland and that humanity is one people living in a common home. An interdependent world not only makes us more conscious of the negative effects of certain lifestyles and models of production and consumption which affect us all; more importantly, it motivates us to ensure that solutions are proposed from a global perspective, and not simply to defend the interests of a few countries. Interdependence obliges us to think of one world with a common plan.”

Encyclical Letter Laudato si’ of the Holy Father Francis, On Care for Our Common Home
