Please join us on Sunday mornings for uplifting and thought- provoking worship.

The upcoming sermon theme is listed below.

Something Beautiful Is Coming:

Rev. Dr. Leon Dunkley

Easter means many different things to many different people.  Around the world, the word Easter, itself, has an array of different meanings—depending, of course, on the process of translation.  The most important question to ask is:  What does Easter mean to you?

Staying Awake!

Vanessa Southern, Visiting Speaker

Most major religions, after their talk of rules or guiding principles, of histories and traditions, or rituals and rites, have somewhere near the core the implicit or in-practice commitment to keeping their people awake. Awake to joy, awake to beauty, awake to the preciousness of life and each other. Awake to the Holy scattered around by some lavish unseen hand. Why and how do we keep one another awake?

For the Beauty of the Earth

Rev.Dr. Leon


Seven years ago, in April of 2008, Paul Hawken wrote a book entitled Blessed Unrest.  In it, he explores his belief that we are part of a movement that is greater and deeper and broader than we know.  As he explains, “It has many roots but primarily its origins are indigenous culture, the environment and social justice movements.”  He says that something beautifully complex is rising up within us, that it is a civil rights movement, a human rights movement and a democracy movement all in one.  As we reflect on Earth Day, do we notice that something is rising?  Can we see it in ourselves and in one another?
