This Sunday’s service: “Redemption Song”

Jeanne Nieuwejaar

Jeanne Nieuwejaar

The Reverend Jeanne Nieuwejaar, our interim minister during the 2007-’08 church year, will be back with us this Sunday, March 29, with a sermon titled “Redemption Song.”

The word redemption may have an archaic ring to it, but it is, in fact, a principle that is central to our liberal religious faith. Our affirmation of the worth and dignity of every individual is hollow unless we also affirm our commitment to help reclaim the value of individual lives that have become lost or broken. This is the work of redemption. In this service we will look in particular at the challenge of reclaiming the value of the lives of those who are serving time in prison, reflecting through the lens of our faith.

Following the service, Reverend Niewejaar invites you to meet with her for lunch and a discussion of her sermon topic.

The service leader will be Helen Brandt.

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.
