October Sunday Worship
October 2: Starting Over
Our series on forgiveness begins with a service that asks what we need in order to begin again. Rev. Rob Eller-Isaacs and worship associate Terry Linskey will offer a service in the tradition of Rosh Hashanah.
Offering recipient: Urban Oasis
October 9: The Gift of Release
When real forgiveness occurs between two people, then both can be released from the restraints that influenced the relationship. Rev. Janne Eller-Isaacs and worship associate Rene Meyer-Grimberg will explore the meaning of this release and the lessons contained within it.

October 16: Celebration Sunday
Come join the ministers and worship associate Brian Newhouse as we celebrate the generosity of the congregation. Our hope is that we will be closing in on our pledge drive goal — or even exceeding it — as we gather to renew our understanding of and devotion to, true stewardship. We’ll ask, "Why me? Why us? Why now?" and answer those questions with our lives.

October 23: What We Owe the World
Forgiveness brings out what Lincoln called “the better angels of our nature.” This week Rev. Rob Eller-Isaacs will be joined by Dr. William “Bill” Doherty, renowned psychotherapist, activist, and member of Unity Church in a service that confronts the dangers “Trumpism” poses both to the nation’s mental health and to the common good. Though we will never tell you who to vote for, the church is obligated to encourage you to vote your values.

October 30: What Happens Next?
To move in the world in a state of forgiveness requires patience, perseverance, and equanimity. Join Hallman Ministerial Intern Jessica Clay and worship associate Kevin Ward as we explore ways that forgiveness practices can be empowering and life giving for the important work of being our full authentic selves.
