Upcoming Service

One Service - 10:30 AM

The Beating Heart Of The Universe Is Holy Joy

Rev. Clare Petersberger, Ana Mosher, Syd Miller

This month, we explore the spiritual theme of "Joy." What is joy? How is it different from happiness? What is the relationship of sorrow and joy? What is the relationship of service and joy? In what ways do we choose joy? In what ways is joy already ours because, as the Jewish theologian, Martin Buber, observed, "The beating heart of the universe is holy joy?" Our reflections on joy will be enhanced by recognizing our two high school graduates: Ana Mosher and Syd Miller and bridging them into young adulthood.
