People Get Ready

When Curtis Mayfield wrote his classic song, People Get Ready, it marked his personal response to the 1963 March on Washington. Dr. King considered the song the “Unofficial Anthem” of the Civil Rights Movement. Frequently used as a rallying song or as a song of comfort, People Get Ready pointed listeners to the time honored theology of preparation and liberation going back to the Exodus story and the Underground Railroad. It took them to the front lines of freedom around the world. What does it mean for us today to “Get Ready” for the train that is coming? Join us as we explore our own personal journey of preparation and getting ready for the faith changes we must travel in our search for authenticity and our place in this world. One hint: “You don’t need no baggage; You just get on Board.”

Silly Octopus

What can an unexpected encounter with an octopus teach us about living wholeheartedly? And what might Ralph Waldo Emerson and poetic theater have to do with it? Please join us for a service that is silly, soulful and meets you where you are.

James Baldwin's Ideology

James Baldwin was an African-American writer who explored themes of racism, religion and gay rights in his novels and essays written from the 1940s to the 1970s. Baldwin had a strong sense of justice and he attacked racism, white supremacy and homophobia in his writings. His main message is about love: all people deserve to be treated with love and should be allowed to love anyone they wish. We will have a story for the children about Harlem, the neighborhood where Baldwin grew up. Join us as we explore Baldwin's ideology which is still relevant today and reminds us that we have work to do to fight racism and homophobia.
