The Myth of the Rugged Individual

April 28, 2024 | 9:00 am & 11:00 am


Today’s Topic:

Ignoring interdependence props up the myth of the rugged individual by erasing people and communities. The pandemic was a brief respite from this erasure when it became clear that people who produce food and water, process garbage and wastewater, and care for children, are essential to our functioning as a society. None of us can survive alone; our lives depend on the work of thousands of people. Join us for this service where we explore how recognizing interdependence resists the harmful myth of the rugged individual.

Worship Team:

Rev. Jennifer Nordstrom, Senior Minister
Tristan Strelitzer, Choral Director, and the Chancel Choir
Jeremy Koenen, Worship Associate
New Member Ceremony

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.
