Worship: "Not Working for the Weekend" - Rev. Jake Morrill

The alienation of our economy breeds cynicism about work. People joke wearily about clocking out, and sing old songs like "Take This Job and Shove It" or "Working for the Weekend." What if our working days, no matter our job, were spent in service of our values? What if our hours, no matter where we were found, served our vision of the Beloved Community? How could that happen for you, in your setting? What would have to change? What will you change, to bring your work and your values into better alignment?

Worship: "Splashing Around in Creation"

This month's theme of work and play confronts us with a question: how much are we truly playing? Not only literal play, as in board-games and volleyball. But how much are we entertaining alternative views and possible pathways toward understanding? How much do we surrender to the infinite universe, alive all around?
