This Sunday’s Service – Hidden Acts of Courage

October 1 Service at 10:30 AM

Rev. Helen C. (Holly) Baylies

We all have different ideas and examples of courage displayed by our public servants and everyday citizens. Some make headlines, others do not. What changes your life? Someone who came forward when it was easier to stay silen? Or the one that takes a risk for the betterment of another who would never know if what they did would matter? Too many acts of courage go unsung and unspoken and their stories are never told. I hope to introduce you to some who have made a difference in my life and of the lives of many others. Those you will never read about or ever meet.
