Life continually demands sacrifices of us, some insignificant and some heartbreaking. What matters most changes from moment to moment. But the idea of sacrifice is that at least some of the time, we can choose to give ourselves to what we most care about. We can give up what is lesser for the sake of what is greater.

The choices are never entirely right and never entirely wrong. But the idea of sacrifice invites us to meet the challenges of the world with the crucial, ongoing question How do I serve love? and with its partner question Is there a larger love that I might serve? Maybe living in the rich and beautiful complexity of those questions is all that anyone, divine or human, has a right to ask.

Share time with us this Sunday! We will view a brief video by Rev. Lynn Unger and then we will have time for discussion. We’ll share a potluck meal after the service. Bring a dish to share! 🥗 Even without a dish, join us!

Come anytime between 10:30-11:00 a.m. for coffee and socializing or stay after the service!
