As the longest and darkest night of the year enfolds us, we respond by kindling lights and sharing all the good cheer and abundance we can muster. Join us for a celebration of the Winter Solstice as we share a sacrament and reflect on the spark of light that is born from the deepest darkness.

Worship Service: "Polarity and Purpose" by Rev. Bruce Taylor

Sunday, December 28, 10:00 AM

Our Seven Principles describe values on which we agree. Our covenant provides us a space for living them out. But how? With our various theologies, emotional styles, and ideas about worship, shall we pick one approach over another? Achieve "balance" by splitting the difference? Maybe there's a better way to frame the question. Todays' sermon describes how to engage our differences in a dynamic way that invigorates, rather than debilitates, our fellowship.
