Upcoming Sunday Services

Welcome to the Month of Liberation (or not)

Sunday, April 5, 2020 @ 10:30am

By Steve Cooper, Director of Religious Education

This virus has affected the entire world in one way or another. Everyone. It doesn't matter who you are or where you're from. We're all in this together. Almost 50 years ago, John Lennon and Yoko Ono wrote a song imagining what a world being as one could look like. We aren’t there, but imagining it isn’t hard to do. We’ve already started the process of living differently, let’s see where this different imagining can take us as the world begins to live as one. This is a service for all ages and we will have special music.

Arisen Again: The Meaning of Resurrection Myths

Sunday, April 12, 2020 @ 10:30am

By Reverend Michael Walker

We had hoped to be together in person today, but this pandemic still has all sheltering in place. This gives some poignancy to the theme of Easter, which is about resurrection and rebirth, new life coming forth in health and love. Join us and be together virtually, as we imagine and co-create a reborn world around us.

Earth Day

Sunday, April 19, 2020 @ 10:30am

By Reverend Michael Walker, with the Green Sanctuary Committee

Working with our Green Sanctuary team, we will contemplate our responsibilities to the world in which we live, and which we bequeath to the generations that follow us. First celebrated in 1970, this is a day to consider the environment and climate change, countering corporate pollution and holding leadership accountable. Most importantly, for us, we examine this as a moral and spiritual imperative.

Forum:
9:15am - Live stream - Science Sunday - For the Origins series, we will talk about the way the planet Earth and life have evolved together over geologic timescales. We'll explore the great feedback loops that keep our planet's systems stable and maintain a clement environment. We'll also consider episodes in the distant past when the Earth's equilibrium was tipped into a new phase, with catastrophic and dramatic consequences. Join us via our You Tube live stream.

Celebration Sunday

Sunday, April 26, 2020 @ 10:30am

By Reverend Michael Walker, with the Stewardship Committee

Today we will celebrate this community and all the people here who makes this a thriving spiritual home for so many. We bring our annual Stewardship Promise to a close, having pledged our support to the work of this church in the coming year. We also celebrate the milestones of long-time members, and welcome new members into our community. The pandemic caused us to change how we do the work of stewardship, but one thing that has remained crystal clear is the importance our community has in the lives of so many people.
