Sunday Service: “Becoming Present: the Fire Within”

December 4, 2016


Jennifer Nordstrom, Senior Minister

“Becoming Present: the Fire Within”
The Rev. Jennifer Nordstrom

With music by Jack Forbes Wilson, Artist-In-Residence. 

In the hustle and bustle of the holiday season, how do we slow down and be present to all that is around us? How do we light the fire of our own attention? What gets in the way of truly showing up to our own lives?

What might happen if we were able to light our own flickering candle and keep it burning through all the wind of the world?

This month’s theme: What does it mean to be a community of “Presence?”
