Verse 42

It’s time to get good at the pivot. We know enough to have lived through the idea that “God is change,” as it says in Octavia Butler’s great novel Parable of the Sower. But Butler has more to say about what comes next. Let’s get curious about practicing our pivot- about our morphing and transformation.

From New Orleans, Rev. Sara is a minister-gardener-artist who loves dinner parties and traveling. She understands herself as part of a legacy of cultural workers, healers, maroons and creoles, southern queer freedom fighters and artists trying to shape god.

Worship leader: Rev. Sara Green

Worship Associate: Steven Mashin

Special music: Martin Manley, piano
