Sunday, March 7, 2021, 11 a.m. — Service: “Welcoming the Stranger”, Rev. Munro Sickafoose

How do we navigate our values in a time of xenophobia and extreme tribalism? What does our hospitality look like? How deep does our generosity extend to those not of our tribe? There are no easy answers. As one of my teachers used to say, don’t simplify, com­plexify.

Sunday, March 14, 2021, 11 a.m. — Sharing Circle: “Journeys”, via email

“Life is a journey, not a destination. Learn to enjoy the ride.” –Abhi Rajal

The Merriam-Webster dictionary defines journey as “something suggesting travel or passage such as the journey from youth to maturity or an act of traveling from one place to another.” 

Life is a journey filled with lessons, hardships, heartaches, joys, celebrations and special moments that will ultimately lead us to our destination, our purpose in life. The road will not always be smooth; in fact, throughout our travels, we will encounter many challenges. Some of these challenges will test our courage, strengths, weaknesses, and faith. Along the way we may stumble upon obstacles that will come between the paths that we are destined to take. In order to follow the right path, we must overcome these obstacles. Sometimes these ob­stacles are really blessings in disguise, only we don’t realize that at the time.

What has been your journey? Was it an epic trip from which you came home a changed person? Or has your journey been a story in your life; an anecdote which highlights who you are. Join us as we share our journeys.

Sunday, March 21, 2021, 11 a.m. — Service: “Liberated Louisa”, Rev. Gary Kowalski

Greta Gerwig’s film adaption of Little Women grossed over $200 million after its release a year ago last Christmas, demon­strating the enduring popularity of its plucky heroine. The author whose own coming-of-age inspired the character of Jo March, and who desperately aspired to overcome the poverty of her childhood, would have been pleased. In honor of Women’s History Month, Gary celebrates the life and work of Louisa May Alcott, whose personal tribulations, trials and triumphs of the spirit were even more inspiring than those of her fictional alter-egos.
