Sunday, October 30, 2022: All Souls

Led by Rev. Rachel Baker, Interim Minister

It has been said that this is the time of year when the veil between life and death is thin. We take this time to honor and remember those who have died. Members and friends of the congregation are invited to bring photos, items that remind them of loved ones, flowers, or candles to the service (either on Zoom or in person). We will build a shared altar on the Chancel table and share what we brought. Those on Zoom may hold their items to the screen and write in the Zoom Chat.

Sunday, December 4, 2022: After the Pastor

Led by Rev. Rachel Baker, Interim Minister

Religious communities are meant to be welcoming, loving, and trusting communities. But our pews and pulpits are filled by people who make a diversity of choices — some of which are healthy, nurturing, and supportive, while others are disruptive, harmful, and sometimes even illegal. These choices impact the congregation’s relationships far into the future. The good news is that congregations may celebrate the nurturing relationships and heal past disruptive behaviors.
