A WEEKLY NOTE from our Interim Minister,
Thank you Vigils and Rituals leaders for planning last Sunday's worship! Thank you Revs. Allyson and Peter Sawtell for your assistance, and Eric and our choir for moving and meaningful music that added so significantly to the service!
This Sunday we will recognize our veterans and remember those who have given their lives in the service of our country and the ideals on which it stands. The sermon, "Reclaiming Our Better Angels!" will invite us to consider our better angels as a nation, as a faith community, and as individuals. If you are in town, please join us for worship.

CFCU Invites us to a Rally to Fund Gun Violence Research Now!
Join us in the amphitheater in Civic Center Park for a rally to tell the Senate: Congress must fund gun violence research! The NRA has lobbied to keep gun violence research underfunded for the past 20 years. In fact, gun violence research is estimated to receive less than 2 percent of the funding it should based on the scope of the issue. Funding federal research would vastly increase what is known about gun violence and support lifesaving policy reform. If you’re attending, please RSVP at this link.
SUNDAY, June 2 -- Embracing Healing and Forgiveness:
What's Next? (Congregational Meeting Sunday!)
As we prepare for our Congregational Meeting, and the decisions about our communal and congregational lives to be made there, we will look at stories of healing and forgiveness (and the new possibilities they can open up), both in our ancient Scriptures and in our communal lives today.
