The doctor is in. On this Sunday, Dr. Linda is prescribing prescription-strength play. Join us as we explore play for all of us.

The Depth of Choosing   

Tara Humphries, Guest Worship Leader

Sarah Dan Jones, Music Director

Tatum Barnes, Director of Religious Education

 

How might we shift our understandings of kinship, love, and family to more deeply reflect the expansive love that our faith proclaims? This morning we will dive into the story of Ruth and Naomi from the Hebrew scriptures and reflect together on Ruth's radical proclamation, "Where you go I will go."

Flower Communion: Sunlight and Flowers

Rev. Dr. Linda Barnes, Worship Leader

Tatum Barnes, Director of Religious Education

Let there be flowers and sunlight as we come together in person for the first time in more than a year! Bring a flower and a lawn chair to join in the outdoor service or enjoy the comfort of home as we will live-stream the service on Zoom as well. At this time, we will bless our solar panels (or the site on which they will be built) as we look forward to a new beginning.

  • Lighting a flaming chalice, the symbol of our faith

  • A multigenerational segment, such as a “The Story”

  • Music, both instrumental and vocal and in a variety of styles

  • A time for lifting up the joys and concerns of the congregation

  • meditation or prayer

  • Readings—ancient or contemporary

  • A sermon given by a professional minister, a guest speaker, or a member of the congregation

  • An offering, collecting financial donations for the congregation or for justice work in the community.
