Note: The service was canceled because of the latest snow storm.

The Reverend Charles Wilson will speak this Sunday, February 8, on the difference between beauty and adornment, and luxury versus simplicity, solitude, and the study of sagacious minds. We’ll listen again to Henry David Thoreau at Walden — with inspiration from Porgy.

“To refine the soul,” Charles says, “Thoreau demonstrates by words and daily living a simple path to a more fulfilling life. He said, and I agree, we must balance the acquisition of accessories with the necessaries, for the good of the planet, as well as our own personal well-being.”

The service leader is Jennifer Revill.

The service will begin at 10:30 a.m., followed by coffee and fellowship at about 11:30. Religious education classes are offered, and visitors are always welcome.
