On June 16 the Beloved Community covenant group will be hosting a Juneteenth Service. We didn’t have to write a sermon trying to convince others of the importance of anti-oppression work.

Sunday, June 2, 2019: Family Service: Beauty In The Unexpected

We’ve all had those moments. The ordinary suddenly appears extraordinary. One minute the objects around us blend into the background, sit there as “things.” The next they come to life, so clearly carrying meaning and memory. What once seemed possessions, now somehow possess us. They are a part of us. And us them. All it takes is a different kind of attention for their appearance to change. When it happens, it’s beautiful.
