OCTOBER Sermons- Month at a Glance

Sermon series: Unity within our Diversity: Belonging to the One Body. 

So many of us are inundated with the news of divisiveness in this one body, our common humanity, and as part of our one home,  planet earth.  

What would it mean to treat the religious and spiritual aspects of life as seriously as we treat politics and economics? Join us this month for a sermon series taking up the great questions of what does it mean to be human, and how do we sustain and manifest healing and hope in these times?
