“Love is a teacher.” This is a service about anxiety and hope, with respect to the climate crisis and our relationships with the earth and with each other. How do we respond to our grief and anger about the climate crisis? What can give us hope and courage? We will welcome special guest musician Amanda Thomas and guest pianist Timm Adams. Don’t miss this special service.
