Rev. Dr. Paula R. Cannon Gable writes:  Sometimes, it's hard for me to listen to the news these days.  I feel discouraged by what's coming out of D.C.  I do not want to live in ignorance, but I do not like the strong negative feelings these broadcasts elicit. I really DO aspire to love my neighbors as I love myself.  But, what if my neighbor promotes values that I find abhorrent?  I'll share my theological struggle, and perhaps tips on how our faith can help Hope and Love abide.   

Sermon from 12/3/17.

Just about every 500 years something big happens in Christendom.  The first big shift (at 400 years) was the movement from outsider to official state religion for Christianity. In 1000 the Orthodox and Roman churches divided. In 1517 a Catholic monk, Martin Luther, hung 95 improvements on the door of his church, and the Protestant Reformation began.  It's 500 years later...

Reclaiming Dignity

This Sunday we continue to explore this month's theme of courage.

It takes courage to make amends for what we've done wrong in this world. Last month our Jewish friends and neighbors celebrated Yom Kippur a day to seek and offer forgiveness for transgressions over the past year. This is hard and deep work.  Join Rev. Joe Cherry in a reflection on reclaiming dignity.
