Join us at 10 a.m. each Sunday for Spiritual Practices. A contemplative time before the service each Sunday to center and find balance in ourselves.

This Sunday after the service is our monthly potluck lunch. If you're able to, please bring a dish to share.

If you need childcare for one of the adult RE offerings, please contact Wendy Weiss in advance.   

Join us this Sunday morning at 11!

The service topic:

Sin and Forgiveness

Rev. Carol Bodeau

The human condition, our topic for this month, is a complex mix of positive and negative experiences.  We are at once the most amazing, creative, caring creatures and, simultaneously, capable of incredible carelessness and downright harm.  How do we balance this mix of ‘good and bad,’ and how do the concepts of ‘sin’ and ‘forgiveness’ work in a tradition that doesn’t necessarily include a theistic approach for handling such challenges?
