Our worship services in July and August will be different this summer, more interactive and intimate, giving us a chance to get to know one another better. After the lighting of the chalice and honoring our joys and concerns, each week, in small random groups, we will engage in discussion of a topic announced in advance – the week before and in the e-News. After the discussion time, the services will close with a song and a closing benediction. We encourage you to join us in this new worship format this summer!

Prejudice - in the sense of a “preconceived judgment” - is a reality of our brain’s built-in safety system. Some prejudices are helpful: when we duck out of the way of a fastball, we can thank our prejudicial brains. Others cause damage to others and to ourselves. What can we do with these damaging prejudices that our brains have learned over the years?

We may scoff at the idea that “bad” things happen for a “good” reason, or that there is a silver lining to every stormy cloud. But could it, in fact, be the experience of most human beings that something seemingly tragic becomes the catalyst for a positively transformative experience. Anecdotal evidence suggests that weathering those difficult storms can assist an individual in reaching the fullness of their potential. Resiliency is essential to a fulfilling existence and getting out of one’s comfort zone in order to take risks which yield the greatest rewards. Come explore “The Fruitful Darkness” and what might grow out of the soil of your darkest days if you embrace that possibility.
