Brave Hearts

Rev. Barbara Prose

As our nation celebrates the idealized notion of romantic love, we will dig a little deeper for the gold hidden in the experienced hearts of our own members. How many times can a heart be broken and still give and receive love? How long can a marriage last and still be full of energy and intimacy? I’ll be talking to several couples in our congregation who have been married more than 50 years, newlyweds, divorcees, and singles. 

I promise, you’ll leave with a few good tips for whatever relationship you’re nurturing these days….including those of you focused primarily on healthy self love.

Divided We Fall

Rev. Marlin Lavanhar

“A house divided against itself cannot stand” said Abraham Lincoln.  A person divided within himself (or herself) is also set up to fall. How do we pull together the diverse parts of our person and personality in order to find an inner unity and wholeness?  It is a life’s work. It is a journey we all take within as well as without. Our work to repair the divisions in the world begin within. 

See you in church,
Marlin
