All are welcome to outdoor Yoga before church
every Sunday in June
beginning at 8:45 and lasting for 50 minutes
Teacher: Leslie Linser
The class will take place on “The Patio,” the concrete area outside the worship hall, or indoors incase of inclement weather. This is an embodied and contemplative way to enter into worship on our day of Sabbath. Leslie Linser, a member of ORUCC and certified yoga instructor, will teach a yoga class grounded in spirituality with breath and prayer and meditation.
From Leslie: “The style of yoga being offered is best described as a gentle, slow flow. And while this will be slow and gentle it will require the ability to get on and off a mat (the floor). If one is able to get on and off the mat then most poses can be modified to fit your abilities. It is important that you know your own abilities and limitations and consult your physician if you are unsure if this is right for you. Whether you are a beginner or experienced in yoga practice, this class is intended to support you in engaging in gentle movements and in entering into a space of quiet and meditation that all can experience. And if you are an experienced practitioner there will be space and opportunities for more challenging poses.

Jim McNamara facilitating
All are welcome!
Please join us even if this is your first time!
Jim invites us to watch some music videos that have moved him in one way or another. It’s mostly pop stuff because that’s what has affected him most over his life. As you listen, think of how the music and lyrics make you feel. Does it feel “right” to you? What music from your personal history would you recommend to others for reflection, consolation or celebration? Was there a time when music allowed you to move through a difficult situation?

June Compassion Offering
Ukraine Refugee Relief
In June, the ORUCC Christian Witness and Service Ministry is focusing on refugee relief in and around Ukraine. We are partnering with the UCC-Wisconsin Conference, and its partner, Church World Service and their Ukraine Crisis Response Fund.
The Ukraine Crisis Response Fund is addressing the unique needs of Ukrainians displaced by Russia’s invasion. In meeting the basic needs of these refugees, the Fund is providing shelter and distributing food, hygiene items and school supplies.
The situation in Ukraine and neighboring countries is unstable and continues to change. Through the Crisis Response Fund, Ukrainians who have been forced to flee from their homes receive warm welcomes to help stabilize their situations.
Uniting in prayer, action, and giving, we stand as people of faith in love and compassion with the people of Ukraine.
You can make a donation by check, on the memo line, please write “compassion” and mail to ORUCC, 1501 Gilbert Road, Madison, WI 53711, or donate online at orucc.org. Click the brown button “Contribute” in the upper right of the home page.
