Worship Service
April 8, 2018
Rev. Catie Scudera preaching

April 4, 2018 is the fiftieth anniversary of Dr. King’s tragic assassination, right in the midst of Passover. Remembering that Dr. King’s final sermon — his “Mountaintop” speech — related his dream of “the promised land” of equality and prosperity for all, we focus our worship service on what Dr. King called “the three evils” that prevent the United States from becoming a national beloved community: racism, militarism, and poverty. This is the first Sunday of Spirit of the Earth Month for our RE program.
