Service Begins at 11:00 AM.
TITLE: “When Ideology Trumps Compassion”
SPEAKER: “Dr. Don Musser”
WORSHIP LEADER: Kay Gonzales
DISCUSSION: New York Times columnist David Brooks recently juxtaposed two prominent ways that humans have understood life and history. One way, based on Greek mythology, sees history as a cosmic battle between good and evil. “Conflict” is the watchword. A second way, based on Judeo-Christian thinking, emphasizes a humanistic focus on life as we live it daily. “Compassion” is the key notion. Much of today’s divisiveness can be understood as a debate between these two orientations. Our future depends on which of these two orientations prevails.
Our service begins at 11:00 AM. All are welcome. Come early for coffee, snacks and lively conversation with Judy and Tony.
