This week, we will be joined by Rev. Mary Higgins who rounds out our month-long look at Authenticity with her message, “It’s Complicated.” Being yourself is complicated. It demands empathy, compassion and love of self as well as others. Authenticity demands accepting that it is not about just declaring who you are but the internal processes needed to integrate your true self, you values and your relationships with others while being at home in your own skin.
We will be joined by the Mill Creek choir, directed by Kristen Tosh-Morelli, with Pam Allenstein, pianist. This will be the final performance of the church year for our beloved choir, who will take a well deserved break over the summer. Performances from local musicians are being scheduled now, maintaining the high level of musical experiences here at Mill Creek.
Come early! Our Adult Religious Education group meets every Sunday at 9:15 am in the MacArtor Library. This will be the final Sunday of our four week unit led by Bob Broesler. This unit is based on the book Christ and Culture by H. Richard Niebuhr. However, there is no required reading for ARE. Bob is guiding us through this unit in easy digestible steps. The book examines Christianity from the perspective of various movements interacting with a larger world. This will allow us to examine five ways of “being church” and at the same time reveal five approaches to the doctrines of creation, humanity and salvation.
It’s going to be another great day at Mill Creek!
