Featured Upcoming Events
Worship Service: "Investing Our Talents" by Rev. Bruce Taylor

Sunday, April 2, 10:00 AM

To speak about money (even during the canvass season) can make us a bit uneasy, linked as it is to issues of freedom, security and self-worth. Perhaps that's why Jesus spoke of money so often, and in parables: wisdom stories that defy a simple interpretation, opening us up to new ways of being. Today, we reflect on The Parable of the Talents (Matthew 25:14-30) to see what we can learn.

Worship Service: "Inter-faith as Inter-Being" by Rev. Bruce Taylor

Sunday, April 16, 10:00 AM

Easter stands at the confluence of Pagan, Jewish and Christian traditions. What are the implications of treating this holiday as an interfaith encounter? In today's service, we reflect on Easter as an opportunity to appreciate the integrity, and the deep interdependency, of our many sources.

hospitality: Liz Strong
