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.

From Lakshmi to Fortuna: Faith & Prosperity

Is money the only determinant of prosperity? Please join Pastor Jacqueline and musical trio of Susan Keiter, Joci Kelleher and Sarah Watts, along with Joyful Noise & pianist Geoff Ullerich, as we explore what faith traditions and spiritual paths have to offer us about living a prosperous life.

Please join us at 9:20 & 11:20. It is good, just and sacred to be together.
