5marksofmission

What does it mean to be a member of the Anglican Communion/Episcopal Church? You are invited to explore this question as we reflect on the Anglican Communion's "five marks of mission":

   1. To proclaim the good news of God's kingdom
   2. To teach, baptize, and nurture new believers
   3. To respond to human need by loving service
   4. To seek to transform unjust structures of society
   5. To strive to safeguard the integrity of creation and sustain and renew the life of the earth

book extrememeasures

Part memoir, part journalistic essay, Dr. Jessica Nutik Zitter draws on her medical experience in intensive care and palliative care to explore how we die - the ways in which the health care system intersects with the end of life, for better and for worse. We will read and discuss Nutik Zitter's book as a starting point for our own reflection on death and dying, and planning for end of life care.

November 3-5 at the Bishop's Ranch, Healdsburg

At our retreat this year we will discuss We Are All Completely Beside Ourselves, by Karen Joy Fowler. The story introduces the troubled Cooke family. Set at two universities (Indiana and Davis), our protagonist, Rosemary, is the youngest of three siblings, whose father is a psychologist studying human behavior. When he brings his behavioral experiments home, it sets the family up for hilarity and heartbreak. Short-listed for the 2014 Man Booker prize, the NYT has this to say:

"The novel's fresh diction and madcap plot - swapped suitcases, a ventriloquist's dummy, lost bikes and drug-laced coed high jinks - bend the tone toward comedy, but it never mislays its solemn raison d'être. Monkeyshines aside, this is a story of Everyfamily in which loss engraves relationships, truth is a soulful stalker and coming-of-age means facing down the mirror, recognizing the shape-shifting notion of self."
