Sermons for June


June 2  Exploring the Prayer of Jesus

For the past few months, we have alternated the traditional version of the  Prayer of Jesus with other versions. This sermon will examine the original prayer’s context as a way of understanding the nature of this prayer and prayer itself.


June 9  The Music Isn’t on the Page

Alice Parker, one of America’s  great living composers, conductors, and teachers of church music, will be the focus of a sermon that will consider the implications of her enormous contributions to choral singing.


June 16  An Arrangement of  Gifts 

We will celebrate Flower Communion at this last service before our summer break, so please bring a live flower to place in the bouquet we will create.  Our homily will include thoughts about all the gifts we share, including a special presentation of Time For All Ages by our youth and music from guest cellist Kyung-Nam Oh.

Meet Our Minister,
Rev. Stephanie Shute Kelsch u
