Sunday, November 24, 9:15 and 11:15 a.m. “An Attitude of Gratitude” – Sermon by Rev. Dr. Terasa Cooley, Interim Senior Minister, and Walter Clark, Ministerial Assistant. Giving thanks is certainly the theme of Thanksgiving, but what does it mean to approach life in general with a sense of gratitude, even when we are unhappy with the world around us? This will be an intergenerational service.
Sunday, December 1, 9:15 and 11:15 a.m. “In Fulfillment of Dreams” – Sermon by Rev. Dr. Terasa Cooley, Interim Senior Minister. Holidays are often a time of dreaming: from childhood hopes for the perfect toy, to a longing for family and friend connections, to larger dreams of peace in the world. A Scrooge would say that rarely do those dreams come true. And perhaps in their perfect form that’s true. But dreams do not require perfection. Dreams require hope and imagination and, in an odd way, a letting go of expectation. Let’s explore a way to keep dreaming.
Sunday, December 8, 9:15 and 11:15 a.m. “The Requirements of Love” – Sermon by Rev. Dr. Terasa Cooley, Interim Senior Minister. Tough love is an expression that I resist, but I know where people are coming from when they say it. Sometimes, and perhaps often, love isn’t easy. In the midst of the holiday season there’s almost a demand for love. But love can’t be demanded. How do we create a space for and a willingness to love without it needing to be transactional or weighted with expectation?
