Featured Upcoming Events
Worship Service: "The Call From Beauty" by Rev. Ian White Maher

Sunday, November 11, 10:00 AM

The call to create beauty, to bring more beauty into the world is often disparaged as frivolous. Some people reproach the call as not industrious, or irrational, or superficial. The capitalist and the philosopher and the activist who rebuke the call to create beauty in the name of higher things like money or reason or justice, I believe, have cut themselves off from the sacred.

musician: Cindy Schilling
