January 25: People Get Ready: The Power of Music in the Civil Rights Movement; Then and Now!
Tom McAninley, Worship Leader

Tom McAninley will reflect on his awakening to that historic movement of the Sixties and how it has impacted his life since then. And the band Soul Rising will invite the congregation to sing powerful songs from that era to strengthen us for these current  struggles.

February 1: The Gender Games
Rev. Theresa Novak, Worship Leader

Gender roles and rules permeate our culture.  There can be a negative impact on all of us if we take those roles and rules too seriously.  What does this mean for us who affirm and promote the inherent worth and dignity of all?  Why are people who do not fit the gender norms and stereotypes seen as such a threat?  Why is there such violence perpetuated against them?  There is a theological explanation and a theological solution.  

February 8: TBD

February 15:  What's Love Got to Do With It?
Rev. Theresa Novak, Worship Leader
