“Awe: Deeper, Wider, More Whole”
This month’s worship theme is “Love”.

Our Share-the-Plate donations in February go to People’s Justice Project, a non-profit grassroots organization of working people and communities of color united across Columbus, Ohio. They work to confront police violence, end mass incarceration, and promote safety and health in our communities.  Please consider donating in person or online to support our wider community and the work of PJP.

We hope to see you in person, or click here to Join our Sunday Service Online at Youtube:

UC Berkley professor Dacher Keltner writes, “Awe is the emotion we experience when we encounter vast mysteries that we don’t understand…Our research suggests that just a couple of minutes a day will do.” In a world of changing alliances, climates, emotions, he continues “awe brings us joy, meaning, and community, along with healthier bodies and more creative minds.” Where were you when you last experienced awe? And who were you in that moment? This morning we will focus on the wholeness at the core of spiritual experience.
