Dethroning Ourselves

Join us for worship this Sunday, October 25th at 10:30 am

Rev. Greg returns to the pulpit this week to conclude our series on compassion, with the message Dethroning Ourselves.

Music will be provided by guitarist E. Shawn Qaissaunee and bassist Scott Michael Lynch, members of the Afghan Jazz Project. We’ll get a sneak peek at the music for the upcoming Kaleidoscope Concert, featuring The Afghan Jazz Project, on Friday, October 30 at 7:30pm (for more information, see the Kaleidoscope Concert Series announcement below). “Q” is a world-class, Berklee School of Music graduate, with a focus on jazz composition. The music of the Afghan Jazz Project combines traditional Afghan folk tunes with American jazz and blues, similar in style to Dave Brubeck. The tunes have a familiar jazz feel to them while at the same time feeling very new, worldly and different from anything you’ve heard before. In the Afghan Jazz Project, Q plays jazz guitar and also traditional Afghan instruments, such as the 20-stringed rubab and the dutar.

​Our Religious Education children are invited to begin their day in the sanctuary and will be excused to their classes after the story for all ages.

Come early! Our Adult Religious Education group meets every Sunday before service in the MacArtor Library at 9:15 am. This week we will viewing a video about Dorothy Day. During his speech before Congress, Pope Francis highlighted the work of four “great” Americans: Abraham Lincoln, Martin Luther King, Dorothy Day and Thomas Merton. “In these times when social concerns are so important, I cannot fail to mention the Servant of God Dorothy Day, who founded the Catholic Worker Movement,” the pope said. We look at the life of Day, who founded the Catholic Worker Movement with Peter Maurin, thus beginning a life of voluntary poverty and radical politics.
