This month we have been focused on the theme of renewal and rebirth. We have explored the symbol of the labyrinth, resurrection and reincarnation. Each of these symbols have been honored by millions of people in a wide range of cultures as aways of understanding renewal , rebirth and transformation.
This Sunday we will explore how institutions can bring about the renewal of individuals and the rebirth of groups. In my sermon “The Power of Institutions to Change Our Lives” I will share several examples of how institutions can affect the moral and social conditions of our lives in positive ways. It is really possible for institutions, when they are based on life affirming principles, to facilitate the development of people’s lives in positive ways. I will explore this theme Sunday drawing from real case histories. We will also be honoring Earth Day this Sunday. I look forward to seeing you Sunday.
This Sunday’s music will honor Earth Day. There will be several special numbers by small groups, plus the choir will sing from Missa Gaia (Earth Mass).
Also, there will be a Congregational Meeting at 12:30 pm.
