Risking Life With an Enlarged Heart (Sun. 15 Dec, 2013 10:30 am - 11:30 am)

Sermon by Rev. Shawn Newton.

"Tis the season!"

All around us in this holiday season are images of deep connection; on television and in the subway are heartwarming advertisements featuring cozy winter scenes that hold up the promise of peace on earth and the hope of comfort and joy at home. Why do these ads so tug at our hearts?

We'll ponder this question on Sunday, and consider what we have in common with those immortal, archetypal icons of holiday cynicism, Grinch and Scrooge.

In faith and love,
Shawn

An Afternoon at the Movies (Mon. 16 Dec, 2013 1:00 pm - 3:00 pm)

The Descendants

In this dramatic comedy, George Clooney plays a wealthy Hawaiian attorney who, after his wife is injured in an accident, tries to re-connect with his two daughters. Clooney brilliant performance is funny and touching, and all of the supporting actors are equally wonderful. Along with the development of the extended family relationships, the movie deals with the family connection to a large section of pristine land in Hawaii which was handed down to them by Hawaiian royalty, but is available for development..
