For over a decade, our congregation has marked the end of the holiday season with a ‘Mirth and Music Service’ that departs from our standard Sunday format, and offers listeners an hour to ‘decompress from holiday stress.’ Our theme is drawn from the words of award-winning Oregon writer, Brian Doyle, who wrote ‘I sing a song of things that make us grin and bow, that just for an instant, let us see sometimes the web and weave of merciful, the endless possible, the incomprehensible inexhaustible inexplicable yes.‘
Debbie is a wildlife artist, story-teller, and occasional service speaker at FUFON. She and her husband Bob have been FUFON members since their 2009 arrival on Vancouver Island.
They enjoy being members of this joy-full community, and camping in the Enchanted Rainforest.
