9:15 Discussion Group, Topic:  "Why societies collapse"

10:30 Service:Rev. Craig C. Roshaven, Easter Sunday—“I Wish I Knew How it Would Feel To Be Free”

By all accounts, Jesus was remarkably free. His freedom enabled him to do the opposite of what was expected:  He had a wandering ministry tied to no one place; he sat down to eat with tax collectors; he healed on the Sabbath; he asked a Samaritan woman for water; and he overturned the tables of merchants in the Temple.

9:15 Discussion Group, Topic: 

10:30 Service: Rev. Craig C. Roshaven, “The Grace of Gratefulness”

There are two meanings of grace, one ordinary and the other theological.  In an ordinary context, grace means beauty or charm of form or expression or movement. In a theological context it means unmerited favor, a divine inspiration or divine influence acting in one to make one pure and strong.  Or the condition of a person thus influenced as alluded to in Leonard Cohen’s song Suzanne:  “And you want to travel with her and you want to travel blind and you know that you can trust her for she's touched your perfect body with her mind.” Sounds like grace to me.

9:15 Discussion Group, Topic: 

10:30 Service April 26— Rev. Craig C. Roshaven, “The Faith of the Free”

“We hold these truths to be self-evident, that all men are created equal, that they are endowed by their Creator with certain unalienable Rights, that among these are Life, Liberty and the pursuit of Happiness.” The equality of all men, not just the men of this new nation, but all men was a heady thing to assert in 1776. The Declaration was not just a Declaration of Independence but a declaration of faith—faith in humanity.
