What I'm Learning from Donald Trump
Rev. Justin Schroeder, Senior Minister

We're experiencing a political season unlike anything we've experienced in recent memory, and more seems to be at stake than ever before. What can we, as people of faith, learn from this moment? What practices can guide us? What new insights can help us build the world we dream of, as we live in right relationship with our fellow human beings, and the planet itself?

This is our final Summer Sunday of RE, with childcare and classes for ages 6 months through 6th grade.
