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!

Living Our Values…
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.
