Upcoming Services

May 29. Deep Remembering and Moral Engagement (Leroy Enck)
Sunday, 11am, Online on Zoom 
What is moral injury? How does it differ from Post-Traumatic Stress and other clinical diagnosis? And how can we, as a community, expand our capacity and create space to hold those from among us who grapple with the pain and moral burden all too often carried in isolation. By engaging in deep remembering, moral reckoning, and opening ourselves to the difficult work of moral engagement, we may learn how to identify with those among us who were willing to die and kill on our behalf, and in doing so, expand our capacity to heal as a community. Together, we will also lift prayers for veteran loved ones lost in service, suicide, or overdose.

Check out this Sunday's the Order of Service here.
