        • Walking With Sophia: Mindfulness Walks, November 18, noon from the wise, friendly tree on our Lynnewood campus. Few people know about the wisdom of Sophia. In Proverbs 8, Sophia existed before God did, and she was there beside God when God created the world. Some consider her the feminine expression of the patriarchal God. Over time, and for numerous reasons, her story got lost and hidden in the annals of history. LUMC is starting a silent walking group based on world-wide walks already in existence. Walkers will travel the streets of our Tri-Valley in search of Sophia by opening themselves to slowing down, breathing, and observing the world around them in which Sophia resides. Walkers will be attuned to the presence of Sophia, seeking her wisdom to develop their special relationship to her and to all others in their lives. We will walk for about an hour, covering a new route each month and allowing about 20 minutes for experience sharing at the end. Our first walk will be Sunday, November 18th. We will leave from Lynnewood at noon and loop back. Watch for more details in upcoming church bulletins or see Diana Bohn.
        • Heifer International Dinner, November 18, 6:00 p.m., Fellowship Hall. It’s time for our annual Heifer Dinner. Proceeds from our dinner are given to Heifer International. For 61 years this organization has dedicated itself to ending world hunger. They provide livestock, seedlings and training for families living in poverty. As these families become more self-reliant, they are required to pass on their training and the offspring of their livestock to others in their community who are in need. Our gifts will be helping others to ―pass on the gift. The results are an improved quality of life and long-term productivity one family at a time. Tickets will be sold between services beginning October 21 until November 18. Ticket prices are $10.00 for adults and $5.00 for children ages 5-11.
        • Labyrinth At Lynnewood, December 1, 3:00 – 5:30 p.m., Fellowship Hall. Walk the ancient path of the labyrinth as a way of entering the season of Advent. The Fellowship Hall will be open from 3 p.m. until 5:30 p.m. You are invited to experience whatever your walking will teach you through the pathway of the labyrinth. If you‘ve never walked it before, or if you seek out every opportunity to walk it, the labyrinth will bless you as you open your heart to what the experience has to offer. You may also walk the labyrinth on Sunday morning December 2nd between 9:00 a.m. and 10:00 a.m. Watch for more information in the Sunday bulletins.
        • Carol to the shut-ins. December 9, 2:00 p.m. It‘s a time to have fun singing our favorite carols while we bring a little joy to those who can‘t get out as well as they used to. You do NOT have to be a member of the choir. Song sheets with the words are provided. So come and make a joyful noise in service to others! Meet at church, and we will carpool.

        • Partners for Change, Tuesdays, 6:00 p.m., Livermore High School Student Union, 600 Maple St., Livermore. This program makes it possible for struggling families to enjoy dinner (6:00 p.m.) and for heads of household to network and learn about community resources (7:00 p.m.), while their children are in childcare or getting help with homework. Also called “Circles,” this is a program initiated by Asbury United Methodist Church in Livermore, modeled after a national project that brings families in poverty into personal relationship with “allies” from churches and other community groups. Sign up with Shana at director@pfctv.org to help by being a partner with folks working to move beyond poverty.
        • Say Something: Stopping Violence Before it Occurs, November 7, 7:30 – 9:00 p.m., Asbury UMC, 4743 East Avenue, Livermore. Asbury United Methodist Church and the Livermore Police Department are partnering on a workshop around stopping violence before it occurs. It is easy to feel overwhelmed by violence and hurt in the world. But together we can make a difference. Together we can learn the signs and intervene to stop violence before it occurs. This is true for suicide, domestic violence, and most mass shootings. We can make a difference, we can commit to learning how to stop violence in our own communities. Join us for this important workshop as we explore how each of us can make a difference.
        • Kristallnacht: The Day the Holocaust Began, November 11, 7:00 – 9:00 p.m., Congregation Beth Emek, 3400 Nevada Ave., Pleasanton. Examine how Kristallnacht emboldened Hitler and reflect upon the lessons Kristallnacht offers for our own day. The speaker will be Fred Rosenbaum. Registration is required at Congregation Beth Emek.
