ERDE, Earth Reverence Dedicants Extraordinaire, is a group dedicated to honoring the Earth and its cycles through worship and fellowship.
Do you long to explore your spiritual connection with nature? Come join with us as we support one another in discovering each of our unique spiritual paths and relationship with the wonder, beauty and power of the natural world.
Arising out of the Green Sanctuary and Religious Education committees, we offered our first earth-based celebration of the darkness and the returning light at Winter Solstice in 2009. We've celebrated each Equinox and Solstice since then with an intergenerational gathering which can include a craft related to the season, a special ceremony, and a potluck meal. We also celebrate many of the cross-quarter holidays, and typically offer a Sunday morning whole-church worship service for Summer Solstice.
In 2017 we decided to broaden our opportunities for fellowship by holding regular monthly meetings, the 4th Sunday of the month at 11:30 in room C1 (dates may change during November and December holidays). Some meetings are used to plan seasonal celebrations, and others are used to delve deeper into Earth-based spirituality and to share our individual journeys and knowledge.
Everyone is welcome! We look forward to connecting with you as lovers of the Earth.
