Sunday, July 7, 2024, 11 a.m. — Service: The Land That Never Has Been Yet,  
Rev. Diana Davies

How can we celebrate Independence Day
with patriotic spirit even as we brace ourselves for the sentencing of this country’s first convicted felon ex-president/presidential nominee? How can we be excited about participating in the upcoming election amid a pervading sense  of fear and doom? We seek to remember  that others, at the margins of society, have faced similar conflict and persevered, through a reading of Langston Hughes’ poem, “Let America Be America Again.”

Sunday, July 14, 2024, 11 a.m. — Sharing Circle: The Untethered Soul

“Shoot, I can’t remember her name. What is her name? Darn,  here she comes. What is it … Sally…Sue?? She just told me  yesterday. What’s the matter with me?” In case you haven’t noticed, you have a mental dialogue going on inside your head that never stops. How does it decide what to say and when? How much of what it says turns out to be true? How much of what it says is even important? Let’s explore this “voice” together. For to be aware of the “voice talk” is to stand on the threshold of a fantastic inner journey.

Sunday, June 21, 2024, 11 a.m. — Service: Your Uniqueness, Your Dream, Your Reality, and Franz Kafka in a Bar, Rev. Doug Inhofe

Franz Kafka died on June 3, 1924. His writing was dark and demanding. He was not famous in his lifetime. Now his work commands worldwide attention, with readers recognizing the dilemmas of their own existence in his writing — bizarre as it seems at first blush. Despite bureaucratic leveling that makes us feel like numbers, and the oppressive intricacies of determining the truth, please persist: believe in your uniqueness, be inspired by hope that your “possible” might creep into your “real,” and awaken to a reality that embodies your personal utopian dream. 


Sunday, July 28, 2024, 11 a.m. — Sharing Circle: Open Topic

Using a virtual “talking stick,” each person can
speak in turn, sharing whatever is in their hearts
or minds in the moment.
