Summer Song Sundays are lay led by members of the congregation. They are a time of sharing of stories from our experiences and life journeys. 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. Oppressed peoples have their own voices. All we have to do is listen. Come celebrate Freedom Day with an informative, performative, and engaging service centering the voices of Langston Hughes, Max Roach, and Abbey Lincoln as presented by Beloved Community Group.

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.
