Karen Armstrong writes: “Religion is not about accepting twenty impossible propositions before breakfast, but about doing things that change you. It is a moral aesthetic, an ethical alchemy. If you behave in a certain way, you will be transformed.” When we dare to move beyond the known patterns and perceptions of our lives, letting the alchemy of love, listening and justice do its work, then we will be more than changed. The base metals of our lives will be transformed into something precious and flourishing. This is the purpose of religion, and the meaning of a religious life: to be transformed. Join us this Sunday, as we begin our exploration of “Transformation,” April’s worship theme. Worship services are at 9:30 and 11:15 a.m.
This Sunday is Sharing Sunday – children 4 years old through 5th grade attend the first part of worship with their families. Childcare will be available for children ages 6 months through 5th grade only. Due to Spring Break, there are no Religious Education classes for children or youth.
