Order of Service 8.27.23 10 am

Online and In Person – 10 am Sunday

Rev. Nica Eaton

Rev. Nica intended her Sabbatical to be a “Pilgrimage to Wholeness”. But being whole inevitably requires a journey through brokenness and disintegration to understand more fully what wholeness means. Experiencing canceled plans, broken feet and her marriage completing, she explores whether wholeness is even a destination we can aspire to. Join Rev. Nica as she shares insights into what becoming a whole human being involves. Please bring your backpacks or work bags, for a special blessing of the backpacks (or work bags) during our Time for All Ages.
