August 23 - Heart-places - Rev. Heather Rion Starr - As we all begin to return from whatever summer journeys or evening reveries have nourished us, let us take this morning to pause and ponder the way certain places fill our hearts and our soulful wells. Whether it’s a popular place on the shore, a particular path we like to walk in all seasons, our own garden, a quiet altar corner we have created at home, or the view of a tree from behind a certain windowpane, what (and why) is that the place that nourishes you?

August 30 - Rev. Cathy Rion Starr will be back in the pulpit.
Worship Associate: Ann LaPorte-Bryan

September 6 - Sue Smolski leads a poetry service.
