Sunday, November 8

Join us as we share some sacred time after a one of our nation’s most historic elections. Service will be a little different – filled with more times of prayer, music and poetry as well as readings from scripture. Instead of a regular sermon Pastor Lucozzi will offer three reflections on the themes of “keeping awake,” hope and justice. Music under the direction of Peter Amidon includes the anthem, “Swimming to the Other Side” by Pat Humphries. There will be three musical reflections “Spirit, Spirit of Gentleness” James K. Manley, the African American spiritual “We Shall Not Be Moved” and “Let Justice Flow Like Streams” music by St. Thomas by Aaron Williams and lyrics by Jane Parker Huber as well as two hymns – “This Is Our Song” sung to the tune Finlandia by Jean Sibelius and “O For A World” music by Carl Gotthelf Glaser and modern lyrics by Miriam Therese Winter. The service will also feature the poetry of Rumi and Langston Hughes. The children’s story for our service is Whoever You Are by Mem Fox. Prayers and concerns for the world and our time are also a regular part of our time together. Everyone is welcome.
