Cultures around the world are marked and differentiated by different dances, which help us to remember our traditions, culture, and our duties to ourselves and others. We can sometimes see this more clearly when we explore beyond our original culture, as Wole Soyinka's "Death and the King's Huntmen" allows us to do.
The theme of our sabbatical period with Rev. Anastassia was "Dance,” and its purpose was to allow us mutually, as minister and congregation, to discover and practice a new “dance” together. In this three-week worship series we will explore how congregational life and shared ministry is a dance. What are its patterns and rhythms? How do we partner, leading and taking cues? What emotions do we experience? What accompaniment do we need? How can we learn to move nimbly or quickly when needed, and ultimately ensure that we are enjoying the dance in the process?
We delve into the reality that some of us have less abundance in our wells, and how we can ensure all have access to clean spiritual and literal wells. Come hear from our past Student Minister Cindy Schaefer about Coal-Ash contamination in our reservoirs - and what we can do about it.
