Sunday Service: “The Covenant of Life”

September 18, 2016

Jennifer Nordstrom, Senior Minister

TWO SERVICES & RELIGIOUS EDUCATION 9 & 11 a.m.

“The Covenant of Life”
The Rev. Jennifer Nordstrom
Alissa Rhode, Lead Music Director

Does being born enter us into a covenant with life? While we come into this world through no will of our own, as Unitarian Universalists, we believe this becoming bestows upon us inherent worth. Does it also bestow upon us inherent obligation?

As we explore what it means to be a community of covenant, we ask the question: are we in covenant with something larger than ourselves?
