Sundays, February 26 - March 26 at 10 am
The Sum of Us (Five-week series)
In discussions of complex topics such as race, do we tend to see things through a “zero-sum” lens? -- where someone’s gain requires another’s loss? Why is that lens often used in the media and in politics? What does that do to us spiritually as Christians?
In her book The Sum of Us: What Racism Costs Everyone and How We Can Prosper Together, economist Heather McGhee explores the Zero-Sum Hierarchy and how it is divisive and self-destructing to all people. McGhee also discusses the Solidarity Dividend. The benefits we all gain when people work together.
Join us for a five-week Lenten group read of this informative and inspiring book. We will discuss how new insights relate to our everyday lives and to our baptismal promises.

Real Life, Real Faith, Real God
Sundays, February 26 - March 19 at 10 am
Life is hard and messy. Many of us are weary from the demands of life and the burdens and hurts we carry. Maybe we feel disconnected from God. What good is God and where do we find God in all the craziness? Join us on Sundays, February 26 - March 19 at 10 am in the Blue Room for an informal conversation led by The Reverend Chip Edens and church members. Come as you are - wherever you are on your journey. Let's seek God's help together.
