Martin, Malcolm, and America

Civil rights activist and religious leader Rev. Dr. Martin Luther King, Jr. is justifiably celebrated by a national holiday commemorating his birthday. We explore the life and legacy of King’s contemporary and fellow Black liberation leader Malcolm X, with whom he is often compared.
Special Music: Mayan Dolev, classical guitar

Is There Nothing New Under the Sun?

“All is vanity . . . all things are wearisome . . . there is nothing new under the sun.” Thousands of years ago, a man known only as The Preacher – Ecclesiastes, or Kohelet in his native Hebrew – wrote these words about his struggle to find spiritual meaning in life. How do we respond to his challenge? Music: Michael Peterson and Laura Rubinstein-Salzedo harpsichord and violin

At Home, Afar

The day of Epiphany is a day of paradoxes. It is a celebration of home and yet it is all about travel: the Magi’s pilgrimage to Bethlehem, and Jesus and his parents’ flight for their lives. Although it is (in the western Christian tradition) the twelfth day of Christmas, it is about gifts, not that we receive, but that we bear and bestow on others. Let’s begin the new year with a reflection on this ancient holiday and what it tells us about home and belonging. Special music: Mayan Dolev, classical guitar
