The theme of “Imagination”
Sunday, January 3 – “Sing Along” – Join Music Director Stephanie Ortolano and Director of Religious Exploration Emily Richards as we sing in the New Year. Favorite songs of the season, songs for kids, hymns old and new. We will be singing live over Zoom from the Sanctuary.
Sunday, January 10 – Rev. Margaret Weis “The Threshold Moment” – We are living in the in-between time where little is certain and much of what we’ve known as “normal” is changed. What can we learn about how we move forward into the new future and how can we imagine a new normal that is more just and more loving, instead of just more of the same?
Sunday, January 17 – Rev. Margaret Weis “One Wild and Precious Life” – On this first anniversary of the poet Mary Oliver’s death, we will reflect together on her poem Summer Day. We will consider the role that imagination plays in our lives and how it helps to shape our futures.
Sunday, January 24 – Rev. Margaret Weis “Imagining a New Future” – How are we impacted by the stories we’ve been told about what is possible? What role does our imagination play in how we see our future? How can we imagine the world as a better place than we found it? Join us as we reflect on these things together.
Sunday, January 31 – “TBA”
