We Don’t Talk About…



April 10, 2022

10:30 am, in person and live streamed from the sanctuary

Rev. Catie Scudera


In the Disney film Encanto, we meet the Family Madrigal who are given magical powers, but struggle with the effects of intergenerational trauma. Notably, the family doesn’t want to hear any prophetic words about possible unpleasant futures. For Palm Sunday this year, we’ll explore why we ignore and banish the “Cassandras” in our lives — whether it’s Jesus, our family members, or prophetic leaders out in the world.
