This Week's Sermon

October 22: How Wolves Change Rivers & The Blessing of the Animals

Our First Service will ask, Does our awareness of our environment matter in an age of global warming? Does it matter how we relate to one another on a planet shrunk by technology and fear? Rev. Leslie Takahashi will examine how the concept of interdependence, so central to our faith, is being played out and resisted in our greater world and what we can do about it. Our Second Service will be, The Blessing of the Animals. As we model interdependence, we will conduct this service on the patio and all well-mannered animals are invited to attend this special service where we acknowledge the way that the animals in our lives connect us to a larger world of joy, care and comfort. Rev. Leslie Takahashi and friends will lead this multi-generational service on the patio!

Giving Orchard

Giving Orchard

In cooperation with The Urban Farmers, planted 90 fruit trees on our property. The trees are now nearing maturity and next summer the fruit will be harvested and donated to those in need.

We are creatures of connection, called to build communities: family, friends, nation, world. This community-building is not a passive activity; it takes intention and effort.
