11:00 a.m. Spiritual Celebration: “Roots of Hope in the Soil of Fear” Rev. Jill Jarvis with Worship Associate Jon Coffee
Fear may be the most misunderstood of all human passions -- at best a survival mechanism, at worst the source of hate. And hope? It's so much more than dreams and wishes for an imaginary better life! Informed by the teachings of process theology, we understand how hope and fear are always intertwined. The possibilities inherent in fear, with its ever-present undercurrent of hope, lead us to reclaim the goodness of life and to engage in the world with hopeful acts of love.
