Minister of the Week: Rev. Nancy Wood


All Star 1 is a family conference that emphasizes intellectual, musical, and artistic pursuits with lots of time for intergenerational fun. We have many multi-generational families who return year after year, but always welcome new people to our one week conference in July on Star Island in New Hampshire.

A day at All Star I starts with a polar bear dip (fortunately optional) and ends with evening chapel often followed by some late night music. In between, are the morning lecture on the week’s topic, morning and afternoon children’s programs, talks-on-the-rocks, art on the porch or in the barn, and plenty of time for chatting in the rocking chairs on the porch and quiet time on the rocks.  However, while the day is full of activities, what and how much you chose to do is up to you.

The heart of our community are the children who involved in morning and afternoon classes and the adults rejoice in watching the trust walks, the Children’s Stunt Show, and the infamous Great People Hunt. There are clenched teeth all around as the community comes together to see if the Junior Teens’ handmade boat will make it to Smuttynose and back!

Join us for a week of conversation, laughter, cherished traditions, and a few sparkling new ways to remind us why Star is truly our Spirit’s Home.
