“Potatoes Are Great: The Economics of Abundance”
Jim Fisher, Worship Leader

Economics, the dismal science, deals with scarcity. The earliest economists including Thomas Malthus, predicted the ultimate descent of civilization in a zero-sum competition for resources. The good news is that we are still here, and we have great opportunities if we make the right choices. Where shall our faith guide us?

An Invocation of Gratitude
Rev. Sara Hayman, Worship Leader
Special Music by Patty Heath! Guest at Your Table!
Bob Dickens, Worship Associate

In her book, Braiding Sweetgrass, Robin Wall Kimmerer writes about the power of the “Thanksgiving Address,” an invocation of gratitude that Haudenosaunee people have said together for centuries. How committed are we to offering praise for the natural world and our place within creation? What role does gratitude and reverence for the natural world play in experiencing a sense of abundance in our lives?
