December Theme is Emotional Intelligence
Dec. 6, 2020, To Soften What Is Rigid in Our Hearts, Rev. Erika Hewitt, guest Minister, (bio below). We know (all too well!) about our human imperfections and foibles—and too often, we acknowledge them in shame or defensiveness. This morning, we’ll take a different approach by using gentle, appropriate humor (a life-giving ingredient, and sometimes a life saving one) to welcome playful reminders of our human instinct to lash out or break down; and playful ways to remind us why practices of resilience are so important. (The service title is a phrase used by Buddhist teacher Pema Chödrön.)
Dec. 13, 2020, Dr. Andrew Tripp, Preaching; Hanukkah inspired worship. Like many Jewish holidays, the message is a celebration of a small community defying the odds to survive in the face of significant oppression and threat. The miracle of Hanukkah is not only the lamp oil lasting, but also the power of Jewish people to live on in the face of persecution.
Dec. 20, 2020, Dr. Andrew Tripp, Preaching; Solstice with wonderful music, readings, poetry, and preaching about the wisdom of winter and what we can learn from the dark. The days are long, the light is dim, but our hearts and minds are bright.
Dec. 24, 2020, Dr. Andrew Tripp, Preaching. Christmas Eve service at 7 PM. We will have carols led by Jordan to sing along with, alongside readings and reflections of the Christmas season from members of the church. We understand that each night a child is born is a holy night, and each night a child is born there is the opportunity for joy and hope to return to be born again. We are collecting a special offering for the Easton Food Pantry this service knowing that economic conditions for many this season make acquiring food a challenge and no one should go hungry this holiday season. Two anonymous donors will match dollar for dollar all donations up to $500 each to go to the Easton Food Pantry. (more information below.)
Dec. 27, 2020, Cluster Music Service, at Unity Church, Jordan Potash, Music Coordinator, While still unable to gather in person, we will gather virtually and spiritually as we gladly welcome the new year with an eclectic offering of music. Focused on bringing the community together as we turn the page on a particularly tumultuous year, the service will feature an uplifting mix of performances from musicians across the cluster. We hope to see you there as we join together during this period of hopeful transition.
