Worship Service Topics, 9 and 11 a.m.

Our Sunday morning Worship Services start at 9 and 11 a.m., beginning with Morning Song.  Missed the sermon?  Listen to them here.

Sunday Worship Sermons:

August 6:  Ask Rev. Gail Seavey
Rev. Gail Seavey
Everything you ever wanted to know about the minister and aren’t afraid to ask.  Come with your questions.

August 13:  “no one got justice”
Rev. Gail Seavey
The Memphis Lynching Sites Project held a prayer service attended by the families of a black man who was lynched in 1917 and a white girl he was falsely accused of murdering.  Descendants of reflected upon the lack of justice for both victims.  I will examine the difficult relationship between racism and sexism then and now.

August 20: Your Liberation is Tied Up in Mine. 
Rev. Gail Seavey
We live in a complex interactive cultural context in which we learn to be white, black, or a person of color. We all want to change this cultural context but did you ever try to imagine who we would be if we were free of being culturally conditioned in this way?  Since this calls for a group imagining together I will include guests to help my reflections.

August 27:  Water Communion
Rev. Gail Seavey, Marguerite Mills, Director of Lifespan Religious Education, and Jaie Tiefenbrunn, Director of Music Ministries
Please bring some water to represent your summer experiences, whether it’s from your backyard, a distant shore or your own tears of sorrow and joy.  All of us across the generations will join together with music, story and celebration in praise of our community and the waters that sustain us.

  1. Beautiful spring photo is well done, and the wheel. I wonder if that coincides in any way with the liturgical calendar of Episcopalian year…we draw from many faiths. I’ve seen the Sisters at many events elsewhere, brave souls.
