Sunday, October 6 — 9 and 11 a.m. — Belonging to a Community — Rev. Anthony Johnson

Sunday, October 13 — 9 and 11 a.m. — What is Soul? — Rev. Anthony Johnson
Ralph Waldo Emerson referred to the Soul as “the wise silence.” Lao Tzu called it the Tao. Plato called it the “good and the beautiful.” Aristotle called it “being.” In Zulu it’s called “Moya.” In Judaism some call it “Ein Sof,” that which is everything and nothing. The “Ka, the “Ba” and the “Akh” were what the Egyptians called it. We call it “the Soul.” This sermon will speak to the concept of soul in our modern lives and what it may mean to be in harmony with “the Soul.”
Sunday, October 20 — 9 and 11 a.m. — There Are No Others — Lark Doolan
When asked, “How should we treat others?” Ramana Maharshi famously responded, “There are no others.” There is power in building inclusive community, where diversity isn’t just tolerated, but valued. Lark will look at group membership and inclusion from a gender diversity perspective.
