July 22, 2018 – One Service 10:15 a.m. – “Beyond the Sum of Parts”

Science fiction writer Octavia Butler reminds us that “civilization is to groups what intelligence is to individuals.”  As a religious community, we are all co-creators of who we are in the world. We each are part of the sum of our community. Join Rev. Neal this morning as he explores our call to interconnectedness.

July 29, 2018 – One Service 10:15 a.m. – “Life: Variety and Singularity”

Worship Associate Dennis Iverson will lead the service. What would it mean to look at the life and the history of life on this planet differently? A different perspective might make the seventh Principle even more relevant.
