Martin Luther King Day: a Day “On”

January 16, 2022 10:30 am

By Steve Cooper, Director of Religious Education

Observed each year on the third Monday in January as “a day on, not a day off,” MLK Day is the only federal holiday designated as a National Day of Service to encourage all Americans to volunteer to improve their communities. The Youth Religious Education Team will help lead this Service for all Ages.

Forums:

Virtual Social Time, 11:30-noon by Zoom. Bring your coffee and join us following the service for Social Time hosted by Rev. Connie Grant. You’ll be assigned to an automatically-generated “breakout room” for a half-hour of conversation with a small group of people. A discussion question related to the service will be provided. Look for Zoom details in the Order of Service email.

Science Sunday: Noon, on our YouTube channel. Last month we looked at the beginnings of Power and Authority in humans. We investigated how (and when) Power structures were inculcated in society.  Today, Mike Winter will look at Power as it resides in humans and in society.  Who gains Power and why?  Does Power corrupt those who have it, or is there something amiss in those who seek Power?  Come and discuss the roles of Power!
