Today’s Topic:

We prepare for our journeys in myriad ways: reading ahead, packing our suitcases, finding the best maps and guides. Our knowledge as well as our physical objects, once carefully stowed, are harder to put away when we come home.

Why do we expect it all to fit neatly when we return? What happens when the journey is not one of physical movement, but one of emergence, adaptation or transformation?

Worship Team:

Omega Burckhardt, Member
Alissa Rhode, Lead Music Director
Beth Monhollen, Worship Associate

Omega Burckhardt, Candidate for Ministry, is entering her final year of seminary at Meadville Lombard Theological School in Chicago. Omega served as the intern minister at Olympia Brown Unitarian Universalist Church in Racine, and she will begin an internship at the Unitarian Universalist Church of Rockford, Illinois, in August. Her areas of interest include small group ministry, technology and faith formation, as well as the cultivation of relationships within the Iglesia de la Gran Comunidad, a Spanish-speaking UU online congregation. Omega and her family have been members of First Church for ten years.
