LOVE IS THE SPIRIT OF THIS CHURCH,
AND SERVICE IS ITS PRAYER.

 

“ARE WE NORMAL?”

Sunday, September 25 at 10:50 am
with Rev. Laura Shennum, Minister of Congregational Life, preaching

IN-PERSON & ONLINE


What is it about the human condition that is normal? And what is normal anyway? By taking lessons from our time in the pandemic, from my time as a hospital chaplain, and from our collective experiences as humans, we can explore how normal is not a concept to compare ourselves to others, but rather a way to build a shared understanding of what it means to be human. This shared understanding can then be the cornerstone to create a lifespan religious education program.

BLESSING OF THE ANIMALS IS BACK!

Sunday, October 9th - 1:00 to 2:00pm, Chapel

Join us in this celebration with music, songs and speakers!


This service affirms respect for all life, reminding us that we are a part of the interdependent web of all existence. This ritual is in the tradition of Saint Francis

of Assisi, namesake of our City, patron of animals and the environment.


Rev. Dr. John Buehrens will give a homily:

  "All Sentient Beings”


Bring your animal companions (or a photograph of them) and participate in this recognition of all the creatures of the earth!
