Love is the spirit of this church
and service is its law.
This is our great covenant:
to dwell together in peace,
to seek the truth in love,
and to help one another.


– James Vila Blake (1842–1925),
American Unitarian minister

Potluck Sunday

Rev. Sara Hayman, Worship Leader
Carol Rosinski, Worship Associate

October’s monthly worship theme is HEALING and healing is in part, the work of justice. In this service and sermon, we’ll explore these questions: How do we bridge divides in society as a part of healing ourselves and supporting the healing of others? What is required of us to bear witness to suffering and to be open hearted enough to engage in the work of personal transformation?

Special Music by James Ballard, Santa Fe musician and composer!

Monthly Congregational Conversation after worship! Nathalie Arruda, Worship Associate

To be human is to experience loss and grief. To be human is to experience hurt and to be disappointed at times by difficult life experiences and relationships that break down. How is healing possible given these truths? How do we get better at staying present to the hurt and opening ourselves up to be willing to forgive and be forgiven?
