From Wheat to Flour: a hands-on process in Sunday School

  • March 15, 2023

Last Sunday, our Sunday School children learned the parable of the Wheat and the Weeds and then had a very hands-on experience threshing, winnowing, and grinding real wheat into flour. They learned just how messy and difficult a job it is! Check out our pictures that tell the story, and don’t forget to click on the YouTube link for a great video of the process!

Embodied Spirituality: Introduction to Tai Chi

  • February 13, 2023

Tai chi has been called a “perfect exercise!” Based on Qi Gong, tai chi is an ancient Chinese mind-body practice that involves controlled breathing and movement exercises for the cultivation of your energy. It involves gently flowing strengthening and conditioning movements which increase flexibility, promote relaxation, and enhance health, strength, and balance and it has been described as a form of moving meditation. On Sunday, many WCUC members enjoyed this mind-body exercise led by our own Ellie Horwitz. Some loved it so much, there’s talk about putting together a class in the near future. If you’re interested in this, please contact Joyce DeGreeff.
