Order of Service 1.28.24


In Person and Online – 10 am 

Reverend Nica Eaton & Melanie Bowe

Love at the Center

Theologian Richard Rohr writes: “Don’t start by trying to love God, or even people; love elements and rocks first, move to trees, then animals, and then humans. …. It works. In fact, it might be the only way to love, because how we do anything is how we do everything. In the end, either we love everything or there is reason to doubt that we love anything.” Join us in exploring what it means to put love at the center of our lives and faith.
