Speaker: Rev. Lydia Ferrante-Roseberry

Dark of Winter

As we round the corner from the darkest day of the year, we gather to honor the awe that darkness brings. We will also warm up the sanctuary and bring back the light by generously decorating our ‘Mitten Tree’. Please bring mittens and hats for this annual offering to EFAA — the Emergency Family Assistance Program. Our children and youth will join us for part of this service.

Awesome and Awful

Sometimes the most challenging moments of our lives open us to the most awesome insights. Join Rev. Lydia and Service Associate Brigitta Vieyra as we explore how we can encounter the sacred in the best and the worst moments in life. Emily Jaworski, mezzo-soprano, and Tad Koriath, piano, will provide songs of awe in all situations.

Making Room for Awe in the Season of Tinsel

Tis the season . . . for overdoing it! More than any time of year, December is filled with invitations to over-eat, over-shop, and over-extend. Sure, a little overindulgence is warranted now and again. But the real treasure in life isn’t in all the stuff we’re manipulated into believing we ‘need’, but in simple ordinary moments. Today, we remind ourselves to notice what most inspires us during this season. The Fellowship Choir will sing songs of awe, highlighted by the ethereal Eric Whitacre piece, “Glow.”
