ONE SERVICE AT 11AM in the Sanctuary

What does it mean to be "the repairer of the breach, the restorer of streets to live in"? Could it be that we are building on something for the generations: past and future? Let us come together to explore our common call to build and rebuild the ruined cities. To restore this world we must come away from the notions of scarcity and the limitations of the moment, and see our life experience as part of a larger chain of causation, each person, taking their rightful place and influencing a small but significant part of the ultimate work effort, which is to say, laying the firm foundations for a new world.
Rev. Daniel Gregoire will be our guest preacher this morning at the one 11AM service.
