The statistics are staggering! What is our faithful response to proliferating gun violence in communities across this country, including Sonoma County? Faith communities are far too silent and inactive on this issue. It’s not enough to help ensure the safety of our congregation alone. Do we not have a moral and sacred responsibility to the community outside our walls to work toward ending this epidemic of violence and death?
The theme of the message for this service may be emotionally challenging or triggering for some people. It is especially not for children.

***The blessing of the backpacks is back! On Sunday, October 8th, children and youth are invited to bring their backpacks with them to service and RE. After Rev. Bev’s sermon that morning, the kids and youth will bring their backpacks in to receive blessings of love and safety from the members of our congregation.
