The Danger of Expectation and the Necessity of Hope – Rev. DL Helfer
As any Buddhist will tell you, it's expectations that get us into trouble. When the world fails to live up to our imagined version of it, despair sets in. And yet we need to know that this world can be changed, and that justice, peace, and love can lead us. Join us as we ponder how to balance letting go and committing ourselves more deeply.
Religious education classes begin on Sunday, September 15
