Song of My Song

Song of My Song

August 13, 2017
Rev. Ruth MacKenzie

Inside every song is a long history of songs, a deep river of influences, eddies, and murky tributaries. Every thing comes from other things, from other places, other efforts. How do we hold this central truth of creativity with the undeniable reality of appropriation? This Sunday begins in music but wrestles with questions belonging to us all, because we all create in a myriad of ways, and everything comes from something.

Join us for worship this Sunday, Aug. 13 at 10 a.m.

Summer Worship Theme: Meeting the Moment
Sometimes it happens in a small room, when your mind quiets, and the rhythm of your breath begins to lead. Sometimes it happens in a conversation, when you take a leap of faith and step into a hard conversation. Sometimes it is that crazy notion that will not be pushed aside, and you make an about turn that leads into an unimaginable freshness of life and purpose. Sometimes it’s showing up in the streets, in a rotunda, in a meeting, in covenantal community. Sometimes it’s showing up for yourself. The religious life is meeting the moment over and over again. Join us this summer as ministers and speakers from all different walks of life, and contexts tell of their spiritual grounding, and stories of meeting the moment.
