#WeekendPlans: “The Calling” w/Robbin Ferriman 9/4/22

“Have you ever felt that God was calling you to do something? How did you feel about that? Were you certain, afraid, unsure? How did you know, and what did you do with that?” ~Pastor Robbin Ferriman

“You are the light of the world,” is the title of the service. These empowering words were spoken by Christ, not as an elitist view of his “Christian” followers, but as a description of the very nature of each of our spirits – especially when we allow ourselves to shine.

#WeekendPlans: 10/31 “The Bright Light at the End of Chaos,” w/ Rev. @RichTafel

Please join us virtually, this Sunday, October 31, 2021, for our 11:00 am, Worship Service with Guest Minister, Rev. Rich Tafel. The sermon title is, “The Bright Light at the End of Chaos.” Zoom links will be emailed to church members and their contacts.

“Reverend Richard L. Tafel serves as the minister at Church of the Holy City. With an undergraduate degree in Philosophy and a graduate degree in Theology from Harvard University, Tafel is ordained; his first job was as Assistant Minister of Harvard University’s Memorial Church.

Realizing that social change agents too often lacked the strategy and funding to have large impact, he began working in the policy arena first as the Director of Adolescent Health at the MA Dept. of Public Health. Tafel then went on to launch the Log Cabin Republicans in an effort to bridge the gap between the conservative and gay community in America. He was one of America’s earliest political activists campaigning for gay marriage. In 1999, he wrote Party Crasher (published by Simon & Schuster) offering a new inclusive vision for American politics.

With his knowledge of politics and vision for social change, he launched his first company that helped nonprofits engage in public policy. He worked domestically with College Summit on access for low-income students to college. In addition, he created the global strategy for AIDS Responsibility Project that helped facilitate the delivery of AIDS drugs to Africa. In addition, they worked with Brazil, Mexico and Jamaica on ending HIV/AIDS discrimination.

His proudest achievements are taking a lead in the 1980’s as a leader in the battle against AIDS, LGBT rights, and the effort to support African countries suffering through the AIDS epidemic. Tafel has spent the last four years leading conclaves to address the growing hyper-partisanship in our culture. He is a frequent commentator on politics on TV.”

#WeekendPlans: 6/6/21, Rev. George Dole

The title of this Sunday’s zoom church service is “A Learning Curve: The Road to ‘As If.’” We are pleased to welcome Guest Minister, Rev. Dr. George F. Dole who will lead us in worship, contemplation and reflection.
“We often focus on the message contained in Swedenborg’s published theological works. But he wrote a lot that he didn’t publish, which unlike his published works contains paragraphs in which he actually talks about himself. It shows his childhood faith being challenged by his formidable intellect and eventually coming to a surprising resolution. Join us Sunday as Rev. Dr. George Dole demonstrates that over the course of his revelatory writing, Swedenborg learned a great deal and actually changed his strategy radically. The path that he followed led him from a parochial focus to a global focus, and has particular relevance for our own times and also for our individual lives.”
