This Sunday’s service: “War Stories”

War is not a popular topic, and for good reason. It tends to bring up all kinds of negative feelings — pain, anger, and frustration, among others. But out of the intensity of war also emerge stories of courage, heroism, and the deepest demonstrations of the triumph of the human spirit over adversity.

On this Memorial Day weekend, using a spiritual sharing format, we’ll look at our thoughts about war as expressed in music and readings, and we’ll have an opportunity to share our own war stories. The service leader will be church member Helen Brandt.

The service will begin at 10:30 a.m. on Sunday, May 27, followed by coffee and fellowship at about 11:30. Visitors are always welcome.
