Join us for worship at 10:30 a.m. as Rev. Robert Broesler continues our series on presence with the message, “The Metaphor of God Incarnate.” Christmas is an interesting time to ask: what exactly does it mean we are “Unitarians”, not “Trinitarians”? And does this mean we cannot be “christians”? (Hint: the small “c” is intentional)
Our music will be performed by the Mill Creek Choir under the direction of Kristen Tosh-Morelli, with Pam Allenstein, pianist.
Children’s Religious Education/ Exploration (RE)
This Sunday in Children’s RE we will be learning about Hanukkah and how a group of people stood up for their beliefs against big odds. The children will be making Jewish Wishing Stars to wish on a change for the New Year. In the book “Shmelf the Hanukkah Elf” we answer the question, why Jewish kids don’t get presents from Santa. Note: there will be no Children’s RE on December 25 or January 1. We welcome and look forward to children coming to Classroom One on Sunday after Reverend Greg’s Story!
Adult Religious Education
Come early! Our Adult Religious Education group meets most every Sunday — before service at 9:15 am in the MacArtor Library.
This Sunday we will listen to an August, 2016 radio broadcast by Carol Anderson, a Professor of African American Studies at Emory University and author of White Rage. White Rage is a harrowing account of our national history during the century and a half since the Civil War — even more troubling for what it exposes about our deep and abiding racial divide. Her book explains the roots of America’s racial crisis. The history of progress and blowback against African American human rights. The “Black Codes” the laws against the Great Migration. How states responded to Brown v Board of Education. Public school funding and property taxes and what that tells us about race. The legal structure of second class citizenship for African Americans. Why class and race are connected but not the same issue and why the Right wants America to look like Apartheid South Africa.
It’s going to be another great day at Mill Creek!
