“The Burning Bowl: Casting Out Fear” | Rev. Julia Hamilton

The New Year brings us a chance to look back at the old year and decide to let go of that which no longer serves us. What is weighing you down or holding you back? What do you want to clear away so that there is space for new growth? The Burning Bowl is a dramatic annual ritual that invites us to cast off our fears and embrace new possibilities.

A special Sunday celebrating our community connections and embracing the legacy of the Rev. Dr. Martin Luther King, Jr. Our choir joins with the choir from Congregation B’nai B’rith as we weave song into a shared vision of a more beloved community.

Tuesday, January 21: Taizé, A Service of Song and SilencE

From 7:00 to 8:00 p.m. in the Sanctuary. For anyone who needs a break, a breath, a chance to go deep into the quiet within: give yourself the gift of a Taizé-style service. This is a candle-lit evening of meditative singing, a few reflective words, and deep, nourishing silence. The songs are easy for everyone to learn and no singing talent is needed, and the Sanctuary is transformed with a warm and welcoming glow as the darkness settles around us and peace settles within us. All are welcome.

“Built to Last” | Worship Hosts: Ken Ralph and Chuck Flacks

Structural integrity is the ability of an item to hold together under a load, including its own weight, without breaking or deforming excessively. When things go wrong, items with structural integrity generally fail safely, avoiding catastrophic failure. Join us as we explore ways to build lives capable of surviving the inevitable setbacks and even disasters that may befall each of us.
