All Saints Day Bonfire at Hanger Hall
…Tuesday, November 1st at 5 pm
Join us at Hanger Hall, 31 Park Avenue, North, less than a mile from Jubilee! for our annual All Saints Day Bonfire. It is said that on the Day of the Dead the veil between this world and the next is lifted and communication may happen. So…we’ll share memories of our deceased loved ones, send them messages.  We will also read, pray and burn the prayers from the Jubilee! Prayer Wall.  Bring munchies & drinkies if you wish.

Get on the Path!
…Thursday, November 17th, 6—9 pm at Hanger Hall

Join the Discussion…It is not too late to join in the conversation!
Jubilee’s Book Group meets every Monday at 1:30 pm and we always welcome new members.  On October 10, we began discussion of Between the World and Me, by Ta-Nehisi Coates. This book is a #1 NY Times bestseller and a National Book Winner.  From The New York Observer: “This is a bold and personal literary exploration of America’s racial history by ‘the single best writer on the subject of race in the United States.’” Questions?  Call Claudia 713-3720.

Are Your Beliefs Holding You Back?
…Thursday, November 10th, from 7—8:30 pm
“If you’re not living your higher purpose, then whose purpose are you living? Join us for an exploration of the negative habits, beliefs, and scripts that may be running your life and keeping you from knowing and living your true purpose. We’ll also explore a simple process for testing and challenging those beliefs that can bring you relief from their effects and help you clear out the inner obstacles that may be keeping you from living your truest life.” Join Jubilant Steve Martin for this enlightening discussion.  This class is sponsored by the Jubilee! Spiritual Journey Team.
