This Sunday’s service: Finding the sacred without God

Please join us at our service this Sunday, May 10, when the Reverend Steve Edington will speak on the topic “Finding the Sacred in the Absence of God.”

The sermon draws on Dr. Sam Keen’s book In the Absence of God: Dwelling in the Presence of the Sacred. It’s about how one discovers and cultivates a sense of the Sacred in living even if one does not embrace the concept of a supernatural Deity. What paths remain open for one’s spiritual searching after the forest has been cleared of dogma?

As part of this sermon Reverend Edington will share some of his own spiritual journey from conservative Christianity to a theological position known as “panentheism.”

The offering will be donated to Healing Abuse Working for Change (HAWC). After 30 years as “Help for Abused Women and their Children,” HAWC chose to change its name to “Healing Abuse Working for Change.” The new name aligns with HAWC’s commitment to serve all individuals affected by domestic abuse.

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.
