Speaker: Dick Bailey

Putting Fear In Its Place

Fear is an intrinsic part of the human condition. We experience fear from an early age potentially on through to our ultimate passing, although what we are afraid of and how we deal with that may well change over our lifetime. Through the lens of sacred stories, including those shared by congregants, we will weave together how our fears (and we) have changed from childhood, to early adulthood, to today, and what fear has taught us – examining what has worked, what hasn’t, and what matters.

An Invitation to Re-Imagine

From the moment we are born, we begin to learn many things about the world we live in. Sometimes we absorb information of our surroundings naturally, on our own; other times we are taught things to believe as fact, as the gospel. We grow into adults, settle into our truths, and many of us never question the foundational teachings that shaped viewpoint or perspective. Please join E.N. Hill and Courtney Liebi, Worship Associate Dick Bailey, and Church Musicians Geoff Ullerich and Stefan Schneider in this invitation to re-imagine certain stories that have become our truths, a gentle encouragement for us to take active roles in opening new possibilities for the narration of our lives. This is a “Time for All Ages” Service.

Tolling of the Bells

Each year on the first Sunday in January our congregation remembers those who have died during the prior year. We light candles to honor their memory and to re-kindle our commitment to carry forward their dreams. This is a Time For All Ages Service.

Our children and youth will worship with us for the first portion of the service. Crescendo Choir will sing and we’ll start off with an acoustic Joyful Noise!

Bowlby meets the Buddah

According to John Bowlby, a developmental physiologist who followed attachment, it is key to well being in infancy and the root of long term physiological health. According to Buddhist philosophy attachment is at the root of all suffering. This service will look more closely at these two views of attachment and importance of both holding on and letting go to our spiritual health.
