Upcoming Services

August 6, 10:00 am Grounding our Action; Activating our Ground
Guest Speaker: Amy Carlson
What is the connection between the life of contemplation and the life of action? How do we foster contemplation and action in ourselves and in our religious communities? Too often we get stuck thinking we have to be either one or the other. Focusing too much on the personal, spiritual quest can cause us to be insular individuals and communities. And, focusing too much on justice work and helping others can cause burnout and loss of vision. Meister Eckhart says, “What we plant in the soil of contemplation, we shall reap in the harvest of action.” Join me as we explore the intersection of these spiritual polarities.

August 13, 10:00 am Conversations that Matter, part 1: Deep Listening
Service Leader: Rev. Elizabeth Stevens
Discord. Debate. Online trolls. Out-of-control partisanship. Bullying. Badgering. Sometimes it feels as if we have forgotten how to speak to one another. If everyone is talking and no one is listening, all we get is too much noise. This participatory service will include a time to break into triads for sharing and reflection.

August 20, 10:00 am Conversations that Matter, part 2: Skillful Speaking
Service Leader: Rev. Elizabeth Stevens
Do we have a problem with hate speech? Or with the cult of political correctness? Is there value to choosing our words carefully? What strategies are effective in bridging difference? This reflective service will include some time for drafting a letter or creating talking points on a topic of your choice.

August 27, 10:00 am Service Sunday
After a brief ritual celebrating the way many hands make light work, we will divide into teams and tackle some projects around the church and beyond. Come and see how much we can accomplish when we all work together!
