This will be our multi-generational community service worship for October. We will have a short service, followed by a chance to choose one of 4 activities in which you can share your love with the world. Perhaps you want to walk a nearby neighborhood to collect canned goods? Or send caring cars to people from our church? Maybe you would rather watch and then discuss a short video on racial justice. Or, in the spirit of Yom Kippur, watch a guided meditation on forgiveness with time afterwards for reflection. Although these activities may be enhanced by in person service attendance, all except the food collection will be available via zoom.After the service, stay as we enjoy a shared snack. Please bring a finger food to share, as well as a food item for donation to Kent Social Services (cereal, peanut butter, or a canned good).
Note: an Order of Service is not available for this event.

Starhawk writes: “Community… a circle of hands will open to receive us, eyes will light up as we enter, voices will celebrate with us whenever we come into our own power.” During our recent workshop with Rev. Sunshine Wolfe, we were invited to think about the church of our dreams. As we welcome new members into our community, we will reflect on creating the church of our dreams, a place of belonging, inclusion and deep connections with one another.

We often sing “Whoever you are, we welcome you.” But can we welcome someone who has caused serious harm to us or others, or whose values do not align with ours? Is our First Principle, which affirms the inherent worth and dignity of every person, realistic or even possible to practice in a world where people are not always good? Together we will explore the theology of and reflect on the challenges of living out our First Principle.
