9:15 Discussion Group Topic: "The Real Roots of Homelessness"

10:30 Service--- Rev. Craig C. Roshaven, “God, a Biography”   

Jack Miles, author of the Pulitzer Prize winning book, God, a Biography, invites us to reflect on the uniqueness of the God found in the Tanakh, the Jewish scriptures.  God as revealed in the scripture is difficult to know. He has no past.  He doesn't talk to himself but only to humankind. 

Aside from the account of creation, there are no stories of God acting by himself.  God's only way of pursuing an interest is by interacting with humankind. Again and again, God seems displeased, but sometimes it seems that it is only through being surprised that he can learn what it is he does want.  One scholar suggests that God is like a director of a play whose actors never seem to get it right. He is frustrated with them but doesn't seem to know beforehand what getting it right would look like.  Finally, the actors seem to stumble into the right way, and God is satisfied, at least for the moment.  One might imagine that the point of the play is for humankind to become the image of God.

10:30 Service:   Rev. Craig C Roshaven   “Reclaiming Our Democracy”

Sam Daley-Harris, author of Reclaiming Our Democracy, has helped ordinary citizens save millions of lives through Results, an advocacy organization he created.  In 1990, Results generated 90 editorials and played a pivotal role in tripling our government’s investment in the child survival fund from $25 million to $75 million. With continued work, the fund has grown to $600 million annually.   Now those are results!   Most people see working to end global poverty and ensure a stable climate as a fool’s errand.  Learn how Sam Daley-Harris has helped thousands of ordinary citizens to move from despair to effective action.                                                                              --Story for All Ages
