RGBP Friday Five

Over at RevGals, Songbird writes about the change of season. She put for this Friday Five:

As this vivid season begins, tell us five favorite things about fall:

1) A fragrance
Does late afternoon sunshine on turning leaves smell? Because that is what I think of.

2) A color
Burnt orange, golden yellow, and chocolate brown. (yeah, I know, that's three)

3) An item of clothing
My soft soft soft corduroy jacket...and my old seminary sweatshirt.

4) An activity
Dog walking, hiking, and of course, apple picking (in SPITE of being ALLERGIC to apples! why am I allergic to apples? so weird!)

5) A special day
o.k., this is so nerdy, but I LOVE World Communion Sunday. It is always the first Sunday in October, and I associate it with the season, the feel of the air, community, and connectedness to the beautiful diversity of global Christian expression. 'Course, Halloween is a close second.

Great play...I think the sun on the leaves does have a smell, it smells like fall!

I don't think it's nerdy... but then, maybe that just reveals my nerdiness...

Why didn't I think of World Communion Sunday? I remember one special one early in my adult church-going life when I made Russian black bread, and others made other kinds of bread from around the world, and we had grape juice pressed from local grapes by a member. (UCC-Congregational, no wine) It was wonderful.
