Going Back to Our Roots– Don’t miss this update from WES!

It’s April…and this month, as we explore the theme of Transformation, we are committing ourselves to returning to our roots. Each Sunday will feature an hour-long reading of a Felix Adler text, without discussion or explanation, and music of any kind will be banned.

April fools! ​(Although we will be reading a little Felix Adler together on April 16 in platform). Actually, this month holds two important and beloved celebrations in our life together, and we hope you can join us for both.

Saturday, April 15 – Humanist Seder

You are cordially invited to join us for the WES humanist seder on Saturday, April 15. We will gather at 6:00pm; the ceremony will begin at 6:30pm. Mark your calendars, and invite your friends–this is an inspirational multigenerational potluck dinner that connects us to one of the most widely told stories in Western culture. Filled with music, inspiration, camaraderie and fun, the seder is not to be missed. If you plan to come, please bring a potluck dish serving 10 people, wine or fizzy fruit juice to share, and your dishes and utensils. We need folks to support it, too, by helping to: 1) shop for the ceremonial foods, 2) make charoset, 3) make fun packets for the children (plague packets, anyone?), and 4) set up the Main Hall. Contact Susan Buzek, to RSVP or to volunteer  phone 301-nine one oh-3044 (cell) or email sbuzek@gmail.com  by Tuesday, April 11, so that we know how many places to set.  For more information about the seder evening, including recipes and a “what to expect” FAQ, go to WES member facebook page, or email Susan directly, with the subject heading “what to expect.”

Sunday, April 30 – Spring Festival

Join us for this joyful celebration of transformation, metamorphosis, and hope. The multigenerational platform of story and song will include a baby naming, and the two platforms are followed by a potluck brunch at 1pm. Don’t forget to bring some blossoms for our community flower arch! We are looking for actors and for decorators to help create a truly beautiful space–please contact Amanda Poppei at amandap@ethicalsociety.org if you’d like to be involved.
