Music Sunday: The Hour Has Come to Love (Sun. 30 Mar, 2014 10:30 am - 11:30 am)

Sermon by Dallas Bergen, Director of Congregational Music.

Sunday's service marks our annual 'Music Sunday' service. We'll be treated to music by our choir, resident musicians, and Aleza Coldevin. Sue Berlove will share a testimony about the role that harmony has played in her spiritual and musical journey.

Sunday's sermon will centre on our search for truth and meaning through the arts, philosophy, religion, and science. We'll unravel the works of the poetic mystics and the teachings of science, reconciling our profound significance with our profound insignificance in the vastness of time and space. Through seeking knowledge of ourselves and understanding of our place in the multiverse, we can respond to the call to live a life full of meaning--in harmony with others, with our planet, and beyond.

I hope you'll join us!
