Sunday, September 25, 2022 at 11 AM.

A multi-platform service led by Rev. Steven Protzman and Worship Associate Ginny Horvarth.

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.

The Impossible Principle

Sunday, September 11, 2022 at 11 AM.

A multi-platform service led by Rev. Steven Protzman and Worship Associate Lori Mirkin-McGee.

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.
