Sunday Worship

Date: 
Sunday, October 1, 2017 - 11:00

These are challenging times.  During worship from September 10 through Oct 1, we have been exploring the stories of people whose courage is inspiring and hope renewing.  We also invite those who gather on Sunday morning to contribute to a congregational witness for hope by writing their own examples of hope which they have witnessed in recent days. We will have paper feathers on which you may write your examples of hope. The feather imagery is taken from Emily Dickinson's poetry: "Hope is the thing with feathers - that perches in the soul..." 

The Portraits of Hope for this series:

           Sept 10 -- The 18 Nuclear Scientists who signed the Gottingen Manifesto

           Sept 17 --  Ida B Wells

           Sept 24 -- Bishop Karen Oliveto

           Oct 1   --  Martin Luther King, Jr
October 1 is also World Communion Sunday and we will celebrate the sacrament of Holy Communion on this day in solidarity with Christians around the globe.

Sermon Title: 
"Portraits of Hope: Martin Luther King, Jr."
