Developing Our Divine Powers
Four Consecutive Tuesday Nights Starting August 9th at 7 pm
As a child of God you possess many powers and abilities.   Divine Self Sufficiency, love in expression, is the source of all our spiritual gifts.  Divine Self Sufficiency insures that each of us has everything we need to evolve, to express, and to become our true divine person.   You have a number of powers that you can and do use, sometimes without realizing them. Here’s a list of the fundamental gifts of the Divine; Word, Breath, Thought, Intention, Visualization, Imagination, Manifestation, Invocation, Intuition, Healing, Creation, and Love.   These classes will offer simple, yet powerful techniques, to understand and improve the use of your powers. Join Page Bryant and David Robertson, with special appearance by Charley Castex, for this empowering series beginning August 9th,  7 pm, in the Garden Room.  A donation of $10 is suggested. Sponsored by the Spiritual Journeys Team.

The Jubilee! Summer Orchestra in Concert
…Sunday, August 14th at 7:30 pm
The Jubilee!  Summer Orchestra presents “American Dreams,” a diverse program of American music from the 20th and 21st centuries, on Sunday, August 14, 7:30 pm. As this ever-discordant election cycle kicks into full gear, come take a break by celebrating American harmony instead! Tickets are $5 at the door, but nobody will be turned away for lack of funds.  For more info, visit www.jubileeorchestra. net or contact info@jubileeorchestra.net.  The program includes Aaron Copland’s haunting music from the film Our Town, as well as the famous “Variations on a Shaker Melody” from the ballet Appalachian Spring.  The program will also feature the jazz-inspired music of George Gershwin (“I Got Rhythm,” “Rhapsody in Blue,” Someone to Watch Over Me”) and Morton Gould, plus Cole Porter’s “Begin the Beguine” and John Williams’s stirring “Summon the Heroes,” written for the Atlanta Olympic Games in 1996.  Asheville pianist Patrick Littlejohn will be returning to perform with the Jubilee! Summer Orchestra in an original composition called “Eliza’s Song,” arranged from a piece on his 2014 album “The Waterfall.” The orchestra is directed by Jubilant Eric Scheider and is sponsored by the Jubilee! Arts Team.

Are You Ready for This Year’s Election?
With the recent decision of the US Appeals Court, we no longer have to bring a photo ID when we vote. However, there is plenty to do to get prepared to vote.  Are you registered at your current address under your current name?  We can help you get registered or update your registration almost every Sunday before Election Day, November 8th!  Most importantly, if you pledge to vote, you will receive timely e-newsletters come fall to help you get your sample ballot; learn about early voting dates, times and locations; and get at least one candidate guide.  You can sign up most Sundays.  If you are interested in assisting with this effort, either at Jubilee or in the general community, contact Ron Katz at 768-4559 or at ronkatz327@gmail.com.

Want to Read a Good Book?
It’s not too late to join the book discussion group.
Jubilee’s Book Group began a new year of weekly conversations last Monday, August 1st, at 1:30 pm. The book for reading/discussion is Sapiens: A Brief History of Humankind by Yuval Noah Harari. This book has been a #1 international bestseller and a NYT bestseller.  Bill Gates said, “I would recommend this book to anyone interested in a fun, engaging look at early human history…you’ll have a hard time putting it down.” Questions?  Call Claudia Sherry at 828-713-3720.  Come join us!

Jubilants are an amazing group of folks, with a wide variety of back-grounds, experiences and wisdom. We want to hear from you.  Come share your stories at our first ever Jubilant! Story Jam. To make it attention-deficit friendly, we are following the now-famous Pechakucha format – 20 seconds of talking for a total of 20 slides. Share about anything you like – wisdom, hobbies, passions, last year’s trip to Spain, anything but politics!  Sign up at the Welcome Table – only 8 slots are available!  Howard will kick it off with a story of his own.
