Following the Yarn of Curiosity

You don’t have to go to another country to experience culture shock, or learn a foreign language to practice cross-cultural communication. Opportunities abound right in your neighborhood . . . right in our congregation . . . And as many describe diversity as a threat, it’s a skill the world needs more than ever. Special Music: Melanie Clapies, violin

Why Do We Build the Wall?

Taking a theme from the Broadway hit Hadestown, this Labor Day weekend we’ll look at some of the myths of prosperity, such as that it is a zero-sum game, where some must be desperately poor for others to thrive, even survive.

“A word after a word after a word is Power.” This is a simple and true statement cut out of a wood panel and sits in the gathering room at Faithful Fools. Poetry has a central place in the life of the Fools. Not only are words power, they are empowering. Worship leaders will share their experiences through the power of their poetic words. Special Music: Larry Chin, jazz pianist
