“What We Owe the World”

August 2, 2020 | 9:00 am


Online Only at 9:00 a.m.:

Summer service is livestreamed at 9:00 a.m. for the safety and health of our congregation. To watch Sunday’s service, CLICK HERE.

Today’s Topic:

Mark Twain once said, “Don’t go around saying the world owes you a living. The world owes you nothing. It was here first.”

If we accept, as Twain says, that the world was here first, then how do we define what and who the world is? And how do we determine what we owe it? How can we, in an ever-changing, ever-uncertain world, use our talents, whatever they are, to act with great love?

Worship Team:

Beth Monhollen, Member
Alissa Rhode, Lead Music Director

Beth Monhollen has been a member of First Church since 2013 and served in a variety of roles–from coffee host to book sales, plus Membership Committee and OWL Facilitator. She is finishing her final year as a Worship Associate and is excited to continue to co-facilitate Geography of Grace, an adult spiritual development group. She has worked in higher education for almost 20 years, but will soon be leaving that life to pursue a call to ministry, attending Meadville Lombard Theological School in the fall. She is filled with gratitude for our First Church community, and for her partner of more than 20 years.
