The dream of democracy in the United States has never been completely realized, but it remains as an ideal, prized most when we most fear that it could slip away. Today we celebrate the nation’s birthday by sharing some of the ways we can help bring democracy to the USA. Some are obvious and some are more subtle; some are a lifetime’s hard work and some are simple things we can make a part of our lives every day. Before coming to the service, you might want to consider: how did you learn to practice democracy?
Featuring a special reading brought to us by Leonard Cohen, Neil Gaiman, and Amanda Palmer.
Worship leader: Rev. Amy Zucker Morgenstern
