Not for Ourselves Alone
Life is a dance between risk and safety, between the known and unknown. Sometimes it feels impossible and far too risky to even image something other than what is. Other times, we’re willing to risk it all for a dream of a new world, for loved ones, for the chance to truly be alive. As Rev. William Sloan Coffin writes, “I love the recklessness of faith. First you leap, and then you grow wings.” Today, we’ll explore how our faith helps us leap, and take risks beyond what we imagined possible.
Join us for worship on Sunday, March 12 at 9:30 or 11:15 a.m. (And don’t forget to “spring forward” – Daylight Saving Time begins this Sunday!)

March Worship Theme: Risk
Risk is a dance with danger. It is stepping into a moment, unsure of what lies ahead. We may enter risk of our own accord or be pushed into risk-taking by life circumstances. Risk stands on the precipice of a failed attempt, a generative opening, or maybe a little of both. Whether we are comfortable with risk-taking or not, it is central to a whole and thriving life. There is no way to avoid it. In this month, we explore the nature of risk, and the spiritual muscles we need to develop in order to meet it.
