“No Permanent Enemies. No Permanent Allies”— led by the Revs. Anya and Scott Sammler-Michael, senior co-ministers. Our civic and political lives are suffused with negotiations, compromises and outright conflicts. We resist dangerous ideas and bad policy by confronting the people that are perpetuating the ideas and proposing the policy. This service invites us to hold these truths in the balance with our first principle that recognizes everyone's inherent worth and dignity. And in a celebration of Spring, beautiful music and artistry abound.
Tenderness is what love looks like in private. Justice is what love looks like in public. Covenant is what love looks like in community. Accountability is what love looks like in relationships. ‘Revolutionary love’ is the choice to labor for others, for our opponents, and for ourselves in order to transform the world around us. These are the many ways to nurture love. Our service is full of music, energy, joy... and you, if you choose to join us!
