Music Sunday:
They Called Her Moses

Gerald A. Brown and
Rev. Bruce Southworth
A Cantata by Robert De Cormier and Donald McKayle

Harriet Tubman’s picture has been selected to appear on the twenty dollar bill, replacing Andrew Jackson. In recognition of this historic move, this morning the expanded choir will present a cantata based on the life of Harriet Tubman. The  songs help to tell the story of the journey to freedom on the Underground Railroad, which prior to the end of the Civil War led thousands of slaves to the Free states and to Canada..           

See you at Community!

Past Sermon Brief

“The Spiritual State of the Union"
January 22, 2017

Rev. Bruce Southworth

            … One of my guiding aspirations comes from the prophet Micah. “O Mortal, what is required of you, but to do justice, to love kindness, and to walk humbly…”

            From the Christian epistle, Galatians: “the fruit of the Spirit is love, joy, peace, forbearance, kindness, goodness, faithfulness, gentleness and self-control."

            Buddhism affirms Mindfulness and Compassion…

            Islam, like other traditions, invokes the Golden Rule, “to do unto others as you would have them do to you.”

            Too little of this is at hand….

            Yet, blessings of spirit appear again, and again. A couple of weeks ago, as some Republicans sought to eliminate the Office of Congressional Ethics, an enormous public outcry caused the House to reverse itself.
