Thank You, Lauren & Chris
This coming Sunday, September 15th marks the end of the 5 weeks that Lauren Fortuna and Chris Andrews have provided leadership for our Celebrations prior to Amy’s first Sunday on September 22nd. This comment by a Jubilant expresses the sentiments echoed by many. “What an absolute treat it’s been! We are such a blessed Community to have such a wonderful team. You have been such a gift to us. Thank you, thank you, thank you!”

In the Hospitality Room Gallery
Jubilant Carol Cole Czeczot, who’s exhibiting her art work in the
Hospitality Room in September, says her always-developing style aligns with our “Evolution” theme. She plans to donate 20 percent of any sales to Jubilee! causes, but she also welcomes those “just looking” and their comments on what her paintings say to them.

Seeds for Celebration Are Now Available
…Online at the website or in print in the Hospitality Room
Go to the Jubilee! website (www.jubileecommunity.org) or stop by the Hospitality Room on a Sunday morning and pick up your copy of the Seeds for Celebration which will tell you everything you might want to know about what is happening in our Celebrations during the Via Negativa that begins on Sunday, September 22nd.  Our new Spiritual Leader, Amy Steinberg, has chosen the theme which is Lay It Down.  After reading the Seeds, and you feel that you have a poem, song, story or dance that enhances that theme on a particular Sunday, please email Amy at [email protected].

Help Us Decide
…Sunday, September 15 from 1 – 3 pm
Our next Jubilee! Racial Equity Team meeting will be downstairs in the Garden Room on the 15th.  We’ll be creating alignment of our Jubilee Racial Equity Team mission, goals and next steps. If you care about this issue, please join us! Questions? Email Melody LeBaron at melody. [email protected].

The Beginning of the Beginning
…Sunday, September 15th at 7 pm, Celebration Center
If you want to get in on the ground floor of Amy Steinberg’s Jubilee! Ministry, then you’d better get your sweet butt to her ordination at 7 pm on Sunday, September 15th. Amy Lauren Steinberg will be baptized that morning at the 9:45 Celebration and then officially ordained as our New Chief and Celebrant Whiz that evening. Seven Jubilee! Ministers will take part in the ordination and we will all consecrate her with a laying on of hands. Many hands, followed by some munchies and sippies to toast her success and Jubilee!’s future.  Be there!

A Sacred Dance Circle
…Monday, September 16th from 6:30 to 8:30 pm
The Jubilee! Spiritual Journey Team Presents Sacred Circle Dance with Maggie Moon O’Neill. The event will be held in our Celebration Center. For  more details, contact Peggy Moore, Jubilee! Spiritual Journey Team Leader, at [email protected] or (828) 779-3690.

Starting a New Book
…It’s not too late to join the group!
The Jubilee! Book Discussion Group returned this past Monday to discuss Blueprint: The Evolutionary Origins of a Good Society by Nicholas A. Christakis.  The group meets on Mondays in our Hospitality Room from 1:30 to 3 pm. New participants are always welcome. Questions? Call Karen Gaughan at (828) 230-8449.

The Awakening the Dreamer Symposium Coming to Jubilee!
…Saturday, September 28th, from 10 am to 1 pm.
The Awakening the Dreamer Symposium is coming to Jubilee! The Symposium is a special three-hour transformative workshop that explores the challenges facing humanity at this critical moment in time—and the opportunities we as a human family have to create a new future. We’ll look squarely at the state of the world and then explore what role we can play in bringing forth an environmentally sustainable, spiritually fulfilling, socially just human presence on this planet. The Symposium consists of presentation segments, short videos, and experiential exercises. There will be an optional 30-minute discussion following the main presentation on opportunities and resources for meaningful local engagement. The Symposium has been delivered by skilled volunteer Facilitators to hundreds of thousands of participants in over 80 countries since 2005. The event is open to the public and free of charge.
