Responsibility to Awe

If we journey outside in the dark of night, at times we are rewarded with a blanket of stars.The great expanse of creation is humbling to behold. Soul Matters asks us this month: "Have you ever turned to the stars for support? Comfort? Escape? Connection?" As we enter into a holy time of year, we consider our responsibility to awe as a spiritual practice.

First Fifteen—Three to four Sundays a month, all ages* join in worship in the Sanctuary for the “First Fifteen” minutes, after which those in K through 5th grade follow their teachers to their classrooms. Parents of K through 3rd grade are asked to sign their children out from classes ten minutes after the end of worship; children in 4th grade and up will be dismissed to find their parents at the end of class. *Nursery care for infants—4-year-olds is available during the entire service in Building 3, Room 33.
