November 25, 2018, “At Midlife We Call It a Crisis” - Rev. Margie Allen
This is the second service in a series of three about aging. All our lives we are coping with changes that impact our physical ability, our identity, our capacity to make meaning of our experiences, and our spiritual and psychological adjustment to loss and change. When we are old, we call this process aging. When we are young, we call it growing. At midlife, we call it a crisis.
December 2, 2018, “Sabbaths” - Rev. Margie Allen
Our Sunday Sabbath originated in Judaism as a Saturday devoted to rest, prayer, and family. A day of rest. That sounds awfully nice, doesn’t it? When do you rest?
December 9, 2018, "A World of Values" - Dave Tarbell, Worship Leader
We live in a world of values. They are fundamental to who we are. If we experience an identity crisis, it is about values. There is good reason to say they are fundamental to the existence of any living thing.

December 23, 2018, "Miracles" - Rev. Margie Allen
In 1820, six years before he died, Thomas Jefferson produced a cut-and-paste version of the Bible from which he removed all content he considered “contrary to reason,” including all the miracles and the resurrection. Are there miracles in your story?
