Featured Upcoming Events
Worship Service: "Decluttering" by Rev. Bruce Taylor

Sunday, October 11, 10:00 AM

After ten years of letting my books, papers, clothes, and lots of other stuff pile up, I've decided to sort through it all, and decide what to keep and what to throw away. In pursuing this project, I encounter countless details of my past, as they literally pass through my hands: some mundane, some deeply significant; some familiar and some long forgotten. Today's sermon considers decluttering as a spiritual practice.
