Worship Service
Sunday, September 17, 2017
10:30am in the Sanctuary
Rev. Catie Scudera, preaching

Our eighteenth-century Universalist ancestors proclaimed that the God worshipped in neighboring Christian congregations lacked a certain goodness. Furthermore, they declared that if the God worshipped on Sunday mornings was harsh, judgmental, and strict, the people of that congregation would become so as well — and that was not the desired effect of religious community. During this service, we’ll connect theology to ethics and look to our spiritual ancestors’ Universalist, process, and humanist theologies for alternative conceptions of the divine. For our families with children, remember that children’s religious exploration kicks off this Sunday!
