November 13, 2016: The Long View

Rev. Alex McGee and Worship Weaver Cypress Walker will help us reflect on how the “The arc of the moral universe is long, but it bends toward justice.”  This quote is based on the theology of Unitarian leader Theodore Parker (1810-1860).  Come share in comforting songs and stories.  [Note:   this will be a Social Action Collection Sunday, instead of on its usual third Sunday.  Donations will go to support BRAAF, the Blue Ridge Abortion Assistance Fund.]

This month’s theme question:  What does it mean to be a people of story?

There is a Hassidic parable told by Holocaust survivor and human rights activist Elie Wiesel in his book The Gates of the Forrest.  The last line is, “God made [humanity] because God loves stories.”  Each of us has stories.  TJMC has stories.  The human species, the planet, the cosmos all have stories.  This month we’ll be exploring what it means to be “a people of stories.”
