Sunday, June 30 – Celebrating Beauty in People 
Rev. Sara Hayman, Worship Leader
Cecily Judd, Worship Associate 

You’ve heard the adage, “Pretty is as pretty does?” What do you think makes someone a “beautiful” person? How do we nurture, see, and celebrate beauty in ourselves and in others? In this service, we’ll reflect on these questions and lift up the life of one particularly beautiful person who recently died, Jean Vanier, founder of L’Arche communities in France and the world over.
