Speaker: Ilze Duarte

Imperfect Kindness [pdf]

Each week, we light our chalice to remind ourselves to treat all people kindly. In these times of division, what does “kindly” look like? Ilze Duarte will share the lessons she has learned about kindness. Although—or perhaps because—these lessons come with contradictions and challenges, they underscore the importance of kindness as a spiritual practice.

Volunteer Appreciation Sunday

Join us in a celebration of all the people who volunteer their time and energy to keep our congregation going. Let us take this time also to reflect on how we want to continue giving of our time and talent to contribute to the health of the congregation and our own personal growth.

In Remembrance of the Departed

Ilze Duarte will describe some traditions from around the world for commemorating the deceased. Then, we will remember our own loved ones who have departed. Please bring, if you will, a picture or other mementos to share during the service.

The Power of Community [audio]

Now more than ever we need each other. We need the power of community. But how do we build community? How do we live peacefully and productively with those who seem to have so little in common with us? This Sunday, we will explore what it means to be in community with others and what benefits this can bring to the individual and to society.
