What Does the Hokey-Pokey Have To Do with Life? (Sun. 14 Dec, 2014 10:30 am - 11:30 am)

Sermon by Rev. Shawn Newton.

So, just how long has it been since you’ve done the Hokey-Pokey? I’m guessing that for most of us, it’s been far too long. On Sunday, we’ll give thought to what it takes to put our whole selves in, and maybe, even, to shake it all about!

In love and faith,

Winter Solstice Service (Sat. 20 Dec, 2014 5:30 pm - 6:30 pm)

Sermon by Shawn Newton.

We will celebrate the arrival of the Winter Solstice through a special service held in the round, with candlelight and a walk along a great spiral of evergreens, symbolic of the journey we're all making toward light.

The sermon will be repeated from this morning's service, inviting each of us to consider the miraculous place we hold as children of the universe.

In love and faith,
