Upcoming Sunday Sermon Topic

The Benefits of Sacred Ground

Sunday, October 21, 2018

By Reverend Tom Capo

Author Cynthia Keys wrote in her book The Sacred Garden: “I have learned to treat my garden as the sacred place it is, and it continually nourishes me both in body and in spirit.  Earth is sacred too, and whatever we do to her will come back to us many times over.  If we treat her as merely a resource and a place to throw our refuse, we will reap only death and disease.  If we treat her as the sacred place she is, we will reap the benefits of living on sacred ground.”  Reverend Tom will explore the earth as sanctuary and how we are called to care for it.

Forum:
9:30am in the Learning Center. Science Sunday will explore the protective layer that supports life on Earth, our Ocean of Air. Do you realize that if you would reduce the earth to the size of a basketball, our atmosphere would only be as thick as a few layers of varnish? We will discuss what is our atmosphere composed of, how does it protect and nurture us, how susceptible is it to damage, and how easily can it recover from environmental and man-made shocks?

Religious Education:
Religious Education classes meet at 9:30am & 11:15am.
