Resolution or Resolve? – 1/7/18

On January 7, Lead Minister Adam Lawrence Dyer reflects on these questions: Do we make unrealistic demands and promises to ourselves? We all aspire to be better, but when those aspirations take over and make us unbending and irrational, do they really serve us?

Rev. Danielle Di Bona preaches on this first Sunday of Advent. Join us for the lighting of the Advent wreath.

Music, Meditation and Meaning – 11/26/17

This Sunday we will take a casual approach to sharing time together.  We will sing, we will reflect and we will share our thoughts and feelings about gratitude.  Do you have a brief poem or reading you would like to share?  Is there a favorite song you would like a small group to sing with you?  Would you like to hold silence? We will build this worship and our time together with less structure but plenty of heart.
