How Do You Ken Your Kin?

August 13, 2023 | 10:00 am - 11:00 am


Today’s Topic

Humans suffer from species loneliness, even though we are over 8 billion in number. How do we find our kin so we know we belong? How do we take care of one another, in kinship with earth and its creatures, to counteract endemic isolation? Michael V. McGinnis wrote, “Species loneliness in a wounded landscape moves us to want to restore our relationship with place and others; humanity yearns to reestablish and restore an ecology of shared identity.” Join us this Sunday when we explore finding our kin and kindred spirits by creating community.

Parking: Our church has no parking lot. Jewish Family Services lot: JFS welcomes us to use their parking lot on Sundays. It is located 3 blocks west of the church, on Van Buren near Knapp St. Kingshead lot: On Sundays we can also use the gated parking lot on the corner of Van Buren and Knapp Streets. After you park, get a token from an usher in order to exit the lot. We also rely on street parking in our neighborhood. Here is a map with details.
