Sunday, January 20 at 10:30am: Seeing is Not Always Believing
Curiosity is what keeps us alive to possibility and responsibility. When we learn from what we don’t already know, we grow into deeper understandings of the totality of the world around us and its challenges. Few people realized this basic educational and spiritual truth better than the Rev Dr. Martin Luther King. On the day when we remember how he challenged us to test the possible and take responsibility for the outcome of our actions, we explore what curiosity can mean for us as individuals and as a congregation that strives to live and act by the principles we believe in.
Sunday, January 27 at 10:30am: The Water We’re Swimming In
Rev. Carol Strecker
Many of us are struggling with what it means to be white in contemporary American culture. Whiteness as a cultural norm. It confers power and privilege based on the color of one’s skin. It’s deeply rooted in systems of oppression designed to maintain the status quo. It can be hard to see because it’s literally the water we swim in. Understanding the dynamics of racism is important work for people of faith who affirm the worth and dignity of all people and equity and justice for all.
