Celebrating Life (World AIDS Day Observation) – Rev Dr Kharma Amos

December 1 is World AIDS Day, a day that brings people together around the world to raise awareness about HIV/AIDS and demonstrate international solidarity in the face of the pandemic. We will reflect on the complicated task of celebrating life while grieving death and promoting hope while honestly seeing suffering.

December 8

The Past is Never Past – Gary Jackoway

December 22

Celebrating Darkness and Light – Rev Dr Kharma Amos

Join us for a celebration of Winter Solstice and Christmas. Winter solstice is the shortest day of the year, a day that people have celebrated since ancient times as the “rebirth” of the sun. We will also observe the Christian (and secular) holiday of Christmas, which is also celebrated by many as a “birth of light” in the world.

December 29

Looking Backward, Moving Forward – Sheryl Winsby

As 2019 comes to a close, we will have an informal service during which we can reflect on our personal experiences of the past year. In addition, we will celebrate a belated National Fruitcake Day at the end with some kosher fruitcake.
