May 10, 2015 Dan Tinen, 11am coffee, 11:30 service "The Prophet's Scorecard". People have many different ideas and fears about what the future will bring. How can we separate what's possible from what's likely? We'll examine the history of all kinds of forecasts...financial, religious, and social, as a guide to what the future may and may not bring.
May 17, 2015 Rev. Steve Wilson, 11am coffee, 11:30 service Native American Spirituality, More than Four Directions: Native American Spirituality: When white people have looked at the theology of the Native Americans, there has been a mix of pity, indifference, and in contrast seeing them as noble savages. Today we attempt to pull aside all the emotions and as best we can offer up a simpler cleaner understanding of what North American Natives believed and believe.
May 24, 2015 Rev. Steve Wilson, 11am coffee, 11:30 service Finally Getting that Tattoo: A Commencement Speech for the Rest of Us This is the time of year where sentiments like “The future is yours, go grab it.” and “you don’t find the path, you make it.” ring out across auditoriums of gowned and capped graduates. June is the season we are used to hearing truths designed for young ears. But with most of us long out of school what post graduate mid-to later in life message do we need to hear. More accurately what message do we need to imprint on ourselves for our future Come for a graduation speech for the rest of us.
