Sunday August 27 at UU Basel

Finding Ease in Heated Times

11:00 Р? at Birsk̦pfli

More precise location info (or alternative venue if rain is forecast) nearer the 27th.

Feeling irritable, cross, and seeking inspiration for our first gathering of the new UUB year, I watch trees yellowing for thirst from my current window, and my relishing the warmth and sun is tinged with guilt.

As I try to think of what more I might do to reduce my footprint on our scorching planet and what I might prepare for our August 27 meeting, I long for ease, flow, gentle words, kind and compassionate ways – and then the Rhein calls, whispering in my ear, ‘picnic! picnic!’. 

So, weather permitting, let’s picnic!

We’ll meet on the grassy area/sandy beach where the Birs meets the Rhein & where we might cool off, share the tales of our summers & dream gentleness into our beings and doings. Will you join us?

Bring drinks, food, shade, something to sit on, and try to avoid unecessary plastic.

Nearest tram stop: Birsfelden Hard, #3 tram. From SBB, take any tram going towards Aeschenplatz, then switch to the #3, continuing in the same direction.
