9:15 & 11:00 a.m. Services, "Mixing Religion and Politics: The Passion of Martin Luther King", Doug Rooks
Martin Luther King, perhaps the greatest American religious leader of the 20th century, is universally celebrated for his work leading to the climactic marches in Selma, Alabama, and the passage of the Voting Rights Act of 1965. His final years, however, were marked by controversy and dissension within the civil rights movement as he delved more deeply into politics, including Vietnam and his quest for economic justice. What lesson does King's life, and death, hold for us in our present moment? Annie Nessen Voorhees will offer special music.
Children's Religious Exploration: Martha and Don Naber will engage the children in the multi-age classroom in the spiritual practice of gardening.

I can’t think of a better way to celebrate the seventh principle of interdependence than with the celebration of Earth Day. Honoring mother earth is a time for appreciating the miracles of nature and the sheer awesomeness of life begetting life. The choir will join this service with “Jesu, Joy of Man’s Desiring.”

Have you ever had words come out of your mouth that shocked you? Within the tension of today’s political and economic diversity, we often find ourselves with emotions we criticize in others. Join us a Sunday of reconciliation in song, silence and word as we celebrate our ‘humanness’ in the good company of each other.
Children's Religious Exploration: Local birdwatchers Glenn Hodgkins and Cheryl Ring will share their passion with our multi-age classroom.
