“Good News, Bad News”
Member Led Participatory Service
A Chinese wisdom story that invites us to
change the way we think about good news
and bad news, a story that reminds us to
honor the paths that our lives take, however
twisting and turning those paths are.
“Coming of Age”
Coming of Age Youth
We celebrate our youth’s transition from
childhood to young adulthood. Our Coming
of Age youth will present a service on their
spiritual journeys, sharing music, spiritual
words and their own personal credos. Please
join us for this ceremony, as we welcome
them as young adults into our community.
“Blessed Are the Label-Makers, Blessed Are the Wordless”
The Reverend Jennifer Innis
Ann Zoeller tells us: “The poet does not
write. Words spring from the fountain of
the spirit.” The power of language is one of
our great gifts. Yet it is easy to be bound
up in words. How shall we call each other
to greatness, words and all? Join us for this
refl ection inspired by the monthly theme of
“Special Hymn Festival”
Roy Redman & The First Jefferson Choir
On May 26 our choir will lead us in a
special hymn service based on the theme
of our covenant “Love is the doctrine of
our church.” Hymns and readings have
been chosen to reflect on each phrase
of the covenant. Also, the words of the
hymns chosen will be some of the major
contributions of our poets and theologians.
The music will include some of the most
enduring hymn tunes of our tradition.
