Human community is built around symbols; the elements of our common life that are imbued with shared meaning.

We should celebrate and commemorate our past accomplishments, but we must also admit to and make amends for our past mistakes  Where does tradition meet innovation? How do we balance nostalgia for the past with a passion and vision for the future?

Service: “Look to the Rainbow” with Rev. Kendyl Gibbons

October 8 @ 11:15 am - 12:15 pm

The musical Finian’s Rainbow, recently performed at the Spinning Tree Theatre, opened on Broadway in 1947, a pointed social commentary in the guise of an amusing fairy tale.  It raises issues of racial oppression, economic inequity, immigration, and even physical disability.  How do its critique and its music speak to us seven decades later?

Service: “Paths of Resistance” with Rev. Kendyl Gibbons

October 15 @ 11:15 am - 12:15 pm

There is always more than one way to confront the forces of evil. Dietrich Bonhoeffer died in Flossenburg concentration camp for using his pulpit to denounce the rise of Nazism. Andre Trocme and his parishioners in the French village of Le Chambon quietly saved thousands of Jews from being rounded up and sent to camps. Which path is harder? Which calls to you? We will share joys and sorrows this morning. Click here to watch streaming video on Sunday mornings…
