SESSION PLANS FOR CELEBRATIONS
We are beginning to assemble a publication of session plans for celebrations and special days through the year. We are looking for sessions related to Earth Cycle and other specifically religious celebrations, Congregational and Church Life Celebrations, civic celebrations. We are considering a basic publication initially, with a way to continue development and collection of session ongoing.
REQUESTING SESSION PLANS FOR A TOPIC
We have received the suggestion that we have a place on the Sessions Section for people to request specific topics. Simultaneously, we would have people interested in developing a requested topic. For example, we just request for information about a session on Privacy. Love this idea for exchange!
