This Sunday’s service: How to confront our fears

devil2Fear is a strong force in shaping political and social attitudes. The recent Ebola scare is a good example. Please join us this Sunday, April 19, when our minister emeritus, the Reverend Ed Lynn, will talk about the ways general fears relate to our more personal fears and how to confront them. The title of his sermon will be “When the Devil Grabbed My Ankles.”

Judy Putnam will perform several piano solo favorites, including “Memories” and “Clair de Lune.” The service leader is Peter VanDeBogart.

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.

After the service, join the Social Action Committee for lunch and a viewing of the film The New Economics 101: True Wealth in the New Economy. Economist and bestselling author Juliet Schor offers a refreshingly clear analysis of the ecological and social costs of mass consumerism and a passionate call to arms for radically rethinking our relationship to consumer goods.
