 “The Power of Words”
Words are powerful tools, and language is often identified as one of our defining human characteristics. If “we shape our tools and then our tools shape us” (as was Marshall McLuhan’s idea), what are the implications for such questions as how we use words to identify gender or to name our religious community? Rev. Connie Grant speaking.

“Blessing of the Animals”

Our annual blessing of the animals service will honor our Seventh Principle, the interdependent web of all being. In our homes and through the natural world, animals bless our lives by their very presence on the Earth and in our personal lives. Bring your sociable animal companion to the 10am service, either on a leash or suitable abode, for a special blessing. Music by the Wailin’ Mahalias.


Join us to stand in support of Black Lives Matter

Sunday from 11:30-12:00pm

You are invited to stand on Ridge Avenue between 11:30 and 12:00 this Sunday to support the Black Lives Matter movement. Last week’s effort – our second of the month – was again very well received by passing motorists and was a most affirming experience. We hope to continue this on a weekly basis with your help. Signs and buttons are available for purchase at the back of the sanctuary and signs will be provided for use today. Sponsored by the REAL team.
