Is there a conflict between the search for truth and the search for meaning? If there were a conflict, which would you prioritize? These are among the questions raised by Joel Slater, who won the opportunity to select a theme for a worship service at our service auction last fall.

Not everyone has a disability that is readily seen. There is depression, rheumatoid arthritis, fibromyalgia, autism, meineares disease, and so on. Through personal stories and experiences Deb Biggins will share what it is like to live with silent disabilities. The program will also share stories of others in our community who have disabilities that are hard to understand, and most times we don’t stop to think about them. People around us are living with difficult handicaps but they are not always seen easily so we tend to overlook them. This service will help open our eyes to those around us suffering with Silent Disabilities.
