“Circling Around Relationships, God, and Love”
Stephanie Pache and Chris Rathweg, Worship Leaders
More than a century ago, the poet Rainer Maria Rilke wrote deeply personal and moving prayers to God, which he published in his “Book of Hours.” His words invite us to fall in love with the divine and the world around us. Like many of us, Rilke turned away from the Catholic faith of his youth, but a time came when he was compelled to describe his intimate relationship with God and honor his spiritual questioning and journey. Join us as we explore Jewish and Christian traditions through personal stories and poetry.

This Sunday’s Half-Plate: Black Lives Matter 5280 assists in building more loving and united Black communities while eliminating anti-Black violence and racism. Black Lives Matter 5280 uses a holistic racial justice approach to expose, address, and eradicate structures and systems of oppression while strengthening individual and community health and wellness. As part of the national movement, BLM 5280 embodies the declaration that Black Lives Matter. Nominated by Katy Wiley.
