July 15 @ 10:25 am – “Finding Balance” – Rev. Jim VanderWeele


Finding one’s balance is not an end in itself. The reason we search for balance is that a balanced state opens the door to new opportunities. It is in a balanced state that life becomes less fractured and more significantly structured; and, in a place of balance courses appear that are filled with life, love, and beauty. This service will include selections from Cindy Scott and Brian Seeger, professional musicians from New Orleans.

July 22 @ 10:25 am – “Irresistible” – Guest Speaker: Dave Thompson


Social media and other technologies can link us together in powerful, even addictive, ways. How do we achieve balance in our relationship with technology?

July 29 @ 10:25 am – “Children & Families in the Age of Anxiety” – Rev. Jim VanderWeele


In this time of border conflict, when all sense of balance has been discarded, it is tempting to turn off the TV when it shares another volley of crying children. Even though the path toward justice is long, there are times when the voices of people of good will call out for a return to balance, to understanding, and to living with the spirit of love. This just might be the most important time ever seen for voices of balance to step forward as agents of justice, equity, and compassion.
