The Revolution of Tenderness

After assuming the papacy in 2013, Pope Francis made an apostolic exhortation, Evangelii Gaudium (The Joy of the Gospel), in which he called for a “revolution of tenderness.” This Sunday, we will explore the foundations of such a revolution and ask, “how could our lives be different if we bravely choose to be more tender?”

The Tao of Pooh

We’re doing something different this month: all of the services will touch on that beloved childhood character,  Winnie-the-Pooh. Drawing on the Tao of Pooh, this Sunday we will look at how Winnie-the-Pooh characters and their place the 100 Acre Woods serve as excellent examples to understand the basics of Taoism and provide broader lessons on joyful living.

Investing in Community

This Sunday we will be exploring the question, “When does one (or a church) become and adult?”
