Autumn Equinox Ceremony September 24, 2016
Come join us as we take time at the Autumn Equinox to give thanks for the many, beautiful aspects of the natural world -- especially the permaculture garden at Dayspring. As the season turns from the exuberance of summer to the time of harvest and letting go, we mark this passage with ceremony. This year the Autumn Equinox Ceremony at Dayspring Church will be held 2 days after Autumn Equinox. We will meet at the Farmhouse at 6:30pm (sunset is 7:04 pm) and then walk in silence through the permaculture garden to the center circle. Once there, we will be sharing the Haudenosaunee Thanksgiving Address with time for silence both before and after the address. Children are most welcome. Event will be held, rain or shine. For questions or to let us know you’ll be coming, please contact: Jim or Cheryl at 301-916-4827

For Reflection

The leaves fall, the wind blows, and the farm country slowly changes from the summer cottons into its winter wools.
