Fidelity might include monogamy—and for many Americans, it does—but many are discovering that fidelity can include different types of relationship structure. From open relationships to polyamory, Rev. Claire reflects on the surprisingly sexy topic of fidelity. Read a PDF of the sermon here: 02-23-20 Fidelity Reading and sermon
Rev. Claire Feingold Thoryn
In this time of constant, shifting change, how do we take it one day at a time? Rev. Claire reflects on our worship theme of “Delta,” with inspirations including meditation, Alcoholics Anonymous, clinically depressed motivational speaker Glennon Doyle, and the recently departed Eddie Van Halen. Our music will complement the service.
After Easter, a few confused and discouraged disciples took a walk to another town. On the way, they met a stranger who made them see things in a whole new light. What new possibilities can we open our eyes to, and find our souls awakening as well, in this strange Eastertide time?
Like buildings and bridges, human relationships involve bending, compromising, and changing. How can we stay true to ourselves and our values while remaining unbroken? Rev. Claire will preach and we will welcome visitors from our Partner Church.
“Be the change you wish to see in the world” goes the saying. In this liminal time of change, how can we and our communities be bold, be brave, and be the change? Rev. Claire will share a story of inspiration from one nonviolent activist whose actions changed the world.
