Remembering the Good

Services at 9:15 and 11:00 am
On this Sunday before Thanksgiving, we turn our attention to the good in our lives. For many of us, it’s easy to feel overwhelmed by the challenges we face throughout life. It can feel like an uphill struggle. But this Sunday we’ll intentionally remember all the good, looking at the cup half full rather than half empty. Indeed, we may find that our lives are better than we imagined, that there is no ‘someday’, but just the ordinary day to day to be grateful for… How might taking regular inventory of all the good that has been and is now, change our lives for the better?

Thanks for the Memories

Services at 9:15 & 11:00
Memories can be sweet or bitter, and sometimes both. This goes for collective memory, those stories and recollections of a people that provide meaning for us in our culture, and it goes for the individual. Whether we think of a holiday like Thanksgiving and all its ambivalences that we had this week, or whether it’s the remembered experiences that shape us as individuals, our emotional centers bring us back, again and again, to places of joy and pain. Can we use all of them to move into a better place, a place of wholeness and healing?
