Who We Are


October 6, 2019 (10 am): Paradox Path to Wholeness
Tom Kircher. Religious life can be hard to understand. On Friday night we celebrate winning the hometown football game; on Sunday we are told that we must lose our life to save it. We are told to save money for the future; religious values honor charity. Our culture gives accolades to the rich and famous and high achievers; yet somehow God favors the poor and outcast. Tom Kircher's sermon will explore paradox as a means for breaking the deadlock of duality and creating space for wholeness and holiness.

October 13, 2019 (10 am): Church, Climate, and the Divine
Rev. Al. With the children of the world calling on adults to save their future we all have a responsibility to listen. Rev. Al will bring thoughts. There will be time after the sermon for the congregation to add thoughts.

October 20, 2019 (10 am): The Chalice Rituals Matter
Rev. Al. Have you ever wondered why we light the chalice on Sunday morning as a sacred moment in beginning worship? Rev. Al will share the history and values found in rituals in gathered worship.

October 27, 2019 (10 am): As if you, I, and God were all married and living in a tiny room
Morgan Rowe. With a nod to the Sufi Poet Hafiz, Morgan Rowe will be talking about embracing this extraordinary existence especially in these troubled and divisive times.

Morgan Rowe is a writer, life coach, former professional actress, and lifelong spiritual seeker currently finishing her studies at the Chaplaincy Institute of Maine while interning with Rev. Al Boyce at Volunteers of America.
