January Services / Past Sermons


Our Journeys
led by Rev. Nick Boke

At this time of year, we often talk about New Year's Resolutions. Since one rarely knows anyone to treat these seriously, it might be interesting to investigate, instead, the journeys each of us is taking, how we think we got here, and where we think we're going.


Are We Ourselves?
led by Kevin Carson

Our tradition has long emphasized the "self" in spiritual growth, but we must also recognize the importance of relationships and community.


Spiritual Lessons from Mexico
led by Laurel Green and Steve Crofter

What happens when searching but skeptical minds come face-to-face with miracles? Through music, stories, and some help from the children, Laurel and Steve will share some of the spiritual insights they gained during the three years they lived in a rural Mexican village.


January Hope

led by Rev. Dr. Nancy Jay Crumbine

From the lengthening light of January comes hope, an idea more complicated and dangerous than it first appears.
