Rev. Steven Chambers 10/22/18

DSCF0198What a privilege it was to hear Rev. Steven Chambers this morning.  No one slept through that sermon!  It touched so many themes that we’ve discussed in the past year.  We  were really inspired.

Thanks to Lorna for bringing him to the island this summer for the Teen Camp Meeting and for Rev. Charlotte for inviting him to preach in Chilmark.  We enjoyed meeting his Mother, Sister and Niece , Hannah, who came all the way from R.I. this morning for the service.DSCF0201Another special blessing this day was the music Lia Kahler offered, her amazing voice filling the sanctuary with Spirit.

Last “Pizza Night”…

Tom Ruimerman did it again!  Huge amounts of Italian food . Absolutely delicious. Jane made a beautiful platter of vegetables.  Salads by Margaret and Joan and Emily..Chocolate Sauce and garlic bread by Pam.  Set up help from the Chilmark-housed Landbank  summer interns.0612181824_Burst01

Some Bananagrams after supper.  Great help breaking down too.  Thank you Julie for a great spring season.  See you all in September.

June 10 Thursday Strings Perform

The Thursday music jam produced a string group that played at worship Sunday, June 10, 2018… Thank you, Emily, Irene, Jeff, Heidi, Pam and Charlotte!

IMG_1176But it’s not all strings.  Rev. Charlotte played her Bb clarinet..IMG_1171It was a bit crowded in the back of the sanctuary..Emily couldn’t  draw her bow out for a long note. You can’t even see her behind the post!IMG_1170IMG_1168All are welcome to come Thursday mornings to try out new songs and learn from each other.

June 5 Neighborhood Convention: The Yard

There was a good turn out to see the popular Yard appearance at the June Neighborhood Convention at Chilmark Church. If possible, the performances and explanations were even more inspiring than ever. DSCF0082

And below, more of the same exercise.DSCF0089Below are a couple of photos of an improvisation involving  maintaining contact .DSCF0094DSCF0097And the pictures of the final and excellent improvisation using words chosen from a dance AP by the audience, just were too poor to share.  You really have to be there..the pictures can’t capture the spirit and vitality.  Be sure to visit the Yard this summer especially the DANCE THE YARD performances in which these dancers appear.  You can find listings at www.dancetheyard.org.
