York Woods, September 11, 2022; 7 am-8 am; overcast and rain.
Four people took a chance today to go birding with Pastor Joe. We learned that DuPage County is home to 268 observed species and that York Woods was the first forest preseve of DuPage County. Woodpeckers were the most abundant bird family represented so we learned how to identify male and female wood peckers.
We heard many hermit thrushes and were rewarded with one on the path flitting its wings.
This series explores the sacraments of holy communion and baptism. In preparation for this, consider watching the 1987 movie Babette’s Feast (available for rent on Amazon and Apple tv for $3.99 or free to checkout at Elmhurst Public Library). Additionally, the library is hosting a series of events called Common Connection: Around the Table that uses lectures, discussion and critical thinking to identify topics that influence the world today. Pastor Joe would love to hear about your experiences. You can leave him a comment by clicking this form.
