Up in Flames
Sermon by Rev. Shawn Newton.
This coming Sunday, we celebrate the New Year with our annual Fire Communion. Once again, we will relinquish to the past what no longer serves our lives, and we'll embrace what we wish to carry forward into the dawning year. Ben MacDonald, Lisa Iwasaki, the resident musicians, and our choir will share festive music that encourages us all to let our little lights shine. My homily will explore the ways destruction can be the catalyst to life-giving creativity. Between, now and Sunday, please give thought to what you're ready to leave behind, as well as what you hope to take up in 2016.
A very Happy New Year to you all!
In faith and love,
