March Sunday Worship
March 1: One Step in Front of the Other: the Dance of Resilience
What is resilience? Why is it a worship theme this month? Who exemplifies a resilient life? Rev. Janne Eller-Isaacs and worship associate Richard Lau will offer their reflections on the meaning of resilience.
Offering recipient: Women's Advocates
March 8: Teaching Resilience
The word resilience is generally understood to be a quality of being that allows us to overcome difficulties and return to our best selves. It calls for us to return to the place T.S. Eliot called “the still-point.” Though some are more naturally resilient than others, resilience can be learned. Rev. Rob Eller-Isaacs and worship associate Kara Younkin Viswanathan will look at how resilience can be taught and how a sense of home provides the necessary base for learning.

March 15: Waking Up and Loving the World All Over Again

March 29: How We Keep on Keeping On
We have some basic understanding of the ways to undergird resilience. We close a month of focusing on resilience with a service that will include a collage voices sharing how the general outlines of what work — regular practice, strengthened intimacy skills, and working for justice — are made manifest in particular lives. Rev. Rob Eller-Isaacs and worship associate Bailey Webster will help us get to know ourselves a little better.
