What Follows Stillness

In this service, we will encounter the values of Kwanzaa, kujichagulia, self-determination and the intersection with Howard Thurman’s urging that the real work of Christmas comes after Christmas. We look forward to exploring possibilities together. Pastor Theresa is joined by Dick Bailey, Sherry Weston-Vigil, and a special presentation from the Village Project.
