What We Believe
"...to seek knowledge in freedom to the end that all souls shall grow in harmony with the divine. Thus do we covenant with each other"

"Widening the Welcome" - 10:30am Sunday
Linking self-worth to ability is a mistake, as is equating the worth of others to their abilities. Our abilities depend on many things, from genetic predisposition to positive (or adverse) life experiences to hard work to social structures that encourage us (or discourage us). How might we widen the welcome to people of varying abilities, whether visitor, newcomer or long time member? We will explore the theme of appreciating and supporting each other.

"Would You Like to Hold the Baby?" Service - 10:30 Sunday
This multigenerational service in word and song is based on the Nativity story. In this pageant we celebrate the spiritual truths and metaphorical beauty of the season. Amy Randall and Cherie Hill are lay leaders.
"Hardwiring Happiness" - 10:30am Sunday
What does neuroscience have to tell us about happiness? Can we really "rewire" the brain so that we are happier? In his book "Hardwiring Happiness," Neuropsychologist Rick Hanson, Ph.D. outlines four steps to build a brain strong enough to withstand the brain's ancient bias toward the negative. We will consider ways to experiment with this approach to happiness.
Rev. Ann Schranz
"Christmas Eve" - 7:00pm Tuesday
We gather to remember the birth of Jesus and to appreciate his message of love. We will sing familiar Christmas songs and listen to the still, small voice within. There will be time for holiday fellowship following the service.
Joan DeArtemis, Rev. Ellen Livingston, and Rev. Ann Schranz
