Worship Service Topics, 9 and 11 a.m.

Our Sunday morning Worship Services start at 9 and 11 a.m., beginning with Morning Song.

Church-wide Theme for April:  freedom, spontaneity and play 

Sunday worship
April 2: “Holy Fools” Rev. Gail Seavey and Worship Associate Gail Sphar
Archetypal Holy Fools dance through their spiraling spiritual journeys full of curiosity, awe, wonder, and courage. They don’t seem to care what other people think about them, but often inspire others to follow their examples. Today we will walk that journey by laughing, taking selfies, and considering the foolishness in some religious figures we’ve come to think of as very serious folks.

April 9: “Roller Derby Religion” Rev. Dawn Cooley
Freedom is inherently risky, but simply being alive means our safety is not guaranteed. When we let go of safety as our primary goal, we can make amazing things happen – both in our individual lives and in our faith communities. Rev. Dawn Cooley is on the Southern Region Congregational Life staff and used to skate as Liv Fearless for the Derby City Roller Girls.

April 16: “Unimaginable Easter” Rev. Gail Seavey
A day of unreasonable stories and joyful music celebrating the ever miraculous renewal of life and love, reborn yet again in the very places we least expect it.

April 23: “Improv with the Wind” Rev. Gail Seavey, Margaret Mills and Worship Associate Andy Collins
During our annual flower communion we celebrate the ways we become strong when we improvise our responses to chaos, unpredictable weather and other surprises.
We invite people of all ages to please bring a flower to represent your most playful self.

April 30: “Free to Be Me” Rev. Gail Seavey and Worship Associate Ron Turner
The Trickster is an archetype that helps us see both the glory and the limits of the freedom to be ourselves. This service will help us practice laugher and not taking ourselves so seriously – invaluable steps toward being ourselves.”

  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.
