Emergence

9:15 & 11 am
Celebrants: Martha Shen & Lyra Halsten

Not many of us have had life match our expectations and anticipated visions, yet sometimes what emerges surprises us in delightful ways. In this service we will hear from several members of our church and Rev. Erin about how we have each been called to dance with life’s emergence.

Life as Jazz

9:15 & 11 am
Celebrant: Kate Allen

Jazz has a quality of unpredictability even though it follows a recognizable pattern. What is it about the jazz musician that allows for the artistry of jazz? What attitudes and skills that make for good jazz might also make us better at the improvisation Life sometimes requires? Join Rev. Jennifer and pianist Bruce Martin as they creatively explore this jazzy metaphor.

Creative Courage

9:15 & 11 am
Celebrant: Marian Stimson

When we tap into our creativity, we are not recreating the status quo. What is it about creating that gives us the courage to wander into the unknown? How might we apply this willingness and energy more broadly in our lives?

Memory and Meaning

10 am ONLY
Celebrant: Susan Gross

On Memorial Day weekend, our thoughts inevitably turn to the causes and consequences of war. When we think of those who have died in service to our country, is our responsibility simply to remember them? Or do we have a larger responsibility to give their deaths meaning? If a family member died in active military service, you’re invited to wear a black armband in their memory.
