Rev. Connie Simon and Meredith Plummer, Director of Lifespan Faith Development Jera Cox, Director of Music
Summer is over and Rev. Connie is back in the pulpit. Join us for a day of gratitude and celebration as we honor member Dick Bozian on his 100th birthday and dedicate youngest member Merryn Marks and her siblings Rye and Marlow. We’ll top it all off with our second annual Water Communion and Community Blessing. Bring your own sacred water or use ours. The celebration continues after the service with cake and lunch in the Ellen Hall Room.
These are troubling times—political incivility, mass shootings, immigrant detention, bigotry and hatred seem to have turned our world upside down. We feel helpless in the face of such turmoil and injustice. What can we do that will make a difference? ____________________________________________________

The Hardest Word
Apologizing is often one of the most difficult things for us to do. It’s hard to acknowledge that we’ve hurt someone else and often even harder to make it right. Too many apologies end up being “fauxpologies.” Why is it that “sorry seems to be the hardest word?” _________________________________________________

Rev. Connie Simon What is Theology? The Poetry of Paul Laurence Dunbar
How do you define theology? Is it just the study of God and the Bible? Or is it something bigger? Nature, art, music and poetry are all rich sources for theological study. Join us in an exploration of theology featuring the poetry of Dayton, OH, native Paul Laurence Dunbar.
Join us for our next Sunday service:
