To Be Human is to Promise – September 7, 2014

We are “promise-making, promise-breaking, promise-renewing” animals. That is what the Israeli Jewish philosopher Martin Buber once said and to Rev. Melissa it rings true. Sunday morning we will welcome the whole community back together after some have been away for summer work and play, and we will explore the promises we make to one another. Please bring a small container of water and/or earth with you to church this Sunday to represent a place where you felt fully awake to your humanity this summer.
