Adult Religious Education — 9:30 AM Kate Moon, “Responsible Consumerism” Responsible consumerism is the practice of applying an ethical lens to the purchase of goods and services, considering the environmental and social impacts of every dollar we spend in categories like: • Carbon footprint & carbon-offset programs • Life cycle of a product • Myths and realities of recycling • Employee protections and fair wages • Food waste Let’s take a look at some big retailers (Starbucks, H&M, Target — and of course, Amazon) as well as some local Napa-owned businesses. We’ll talk about how they stack up and what we can do to move the needle. Be ready to compare notes and maybe we can begin to compile a list of Napa’s most ecologically and socially conscientious restaurants and businesses as a resource for the community! Main Service — 11:00 AM Guest speaker Kai Marks, “The Care and Keeping of Your Soul” "I'm familiar with the works of Pablo Neruda." Fans of “The Simpsons” will likely recognize this line from the episode in which Bart sells his soul for five dollars. What is our soul? And how do we go about caring for it without feeling as if we’ve “lost” or “sold” it? Now, more than ever, we need to nurture a connection with our soul. Sometimes, it’s the smallest actions that can have the biggest impact on our spiritual lives and remind us of all that we are called to become. Whether you’re longing to discover or recover your soul, join us as we explore ways to connect with the sacred in our everyday lives—and, ultimately, to discover the best in ourselves and in each other. Why? Because when destiny calls, our soul knows just how to answer.
