Services in November - Integrity
Nov 2: “All These Gifts: a Musical Celebration!” with Jan Garrett and J.D. Martin. This service is a special musical presentation by the award-winning, singer-songwriter duo Jan Garrett and J.D. Martin. Quoting from their website: “There's a Heart of Harmony we are all longing to tune into. It's the direct experience of remembering with great relief, who we really are. The words suggest a path, the music takes us there.” The Grammy award-winning songwriter, Paul Williams writes, “Jan Garrett and JD Martin’s performances and recordings are a spectacularly creative collection of heartsongs, inspired life lessons sung with ease and joy, reminding me again and again that every day is a gift….” Join us for their special gifts!
Nov 9: “Cherish Your Doubt” with Rev. Dana Lightsey. We like to be sure about things and we like to know what to expect. It is comforting to be clear about our beliefs, yet how sure are we that they are OUR beliefs? There are times when our world-view is shaken and doubt begins to erode away our solid perspective. This terrifying experience doesn't usually feel like a gift at the time, but it often is one of the best gifts life has to offer.
Nov 16: "Staying in Shape: Form, Integrity, and Relationship" with Rev. Nathan Mesnikoff. The word integrity comes from the Latin for "whole." How do we maintain our wholeness in a complex world? How do we maintain our wholeness in the relationships that define our lives?
Nov 23: “Turning Points” with Rev. Dana Lightsey. Most of us long for changes in our lives that we just can’t seem to make happen. So what creates that moment when we realize we have had enough and we DO begin to live differently? How often are we helped by others to reach this point? We will examine these questions and others as they relate to creating the turning points we want to have to bring us into a deeper integrity with ourselves and with the world.
Nov 30: “Social Injustice, Sexual Integrity, and the AIDS Pandemic” with Phoebe Lohstroh. In commemoration of World AIDS Day, this service will provide an update on the AIDS pandemic while considering the role of social injustice in continuing to fuel the spread of HIV.
