Building Community in Times of Turmoil – February 25, 2018

Led by the Summer Institute Committee on Ministry and Worship Associate Kathy Kerns

We make — or break — our relationships through our words and actions. In some situations, community members who felt unheard or hurt during personal conflicts may have left our community. As people who have made promises to each other, how can we respond more skillfully to the needs of all? Building Beloved Community requires many tools. In this worship service, we will lift up the basic practices required for community building within and across our home congregations. This worship service will be presented by members of the Summer Institute Committee on Ministry (SICoM) who are charged with building awareness of covenantal practices at SI and within our congregations.

 

Sunday services are offered at 9:45 and 11:30 AM with Nursery care available during both services.

Empowered Gratitude – January 28, 2018

Led by Rev. Christie Anderson and Worship Associate Kathy Kerns

Research indicates that possessing a meaningful sense of gratitude enhances our well-being. One effective way to cultivate gratitude is to express gratitude in words and deeds. Learn the story of an individual whose life was transformed by the practice of gratitude and consider how this practice can be applied to enhance your life.

 

Sunday services are offered at 9:45 and 11:30 AM with Nursery care available during both services.

Intentions not Resolutions – January 21, 2018

Led by Lisa Thiel and Worship Associate Jeff Marsh

Intentions are a Buddhist practice that is more like reminders of what is ‘right’ rather than the western tradition of ‘resolving’ to change ourselves and focusing on what is wrong
