Acts of Service Build Leadership
With Rev. Emily DeTar Birt in the pulpit
We have all heard the phrase, follow the leader. However, leadership is all about how a leader follows the people they serve. On this Veterans Day Sunday, we reflect on all who have served, and how acts of service are the foundation of leadership.

Making Tolerance Tolerable: Compassion for Others in an Age of Division
With Rabbi Michael Howald in the pulpit
What happens when tolerance becomes just another form of indifference to the fate of others? Using the prophets Noah and Jonah as examples, we will explore what happens when we flee from responsibility for others and elevate our claims of righteousness over the lives of our fellow human beings. Based on the lessons taught by the accounts of these two prophets, we will ask if we can stretch our hearts to make room for compassion for our own imperfections and for the frailties of others.

When Compassion Gets Tough
With Rev. Emily DeTar Birt in the pulpit
No one said compassion was always easy. Compassion is a value that comes in threat when easy forgiveness is asked of us, when unmet accountability is glossed over, when pain is shoved down instead of acknowledged. To trust and care when hurt has happened can be difficult. But holding compassion tightly and knowing the difference between compassion and it’s aliases is what makes true change possible.
