Online Worship: Thresholds of Awakening

Rev. Beth Banks; Worship Associate: Emily Burstein
Thresholds are physically, emotionally, and spiritually powerful places. Some cultures and religious traditions have rituals to designate threshold crossings. The brain becomes alert at a threshold: beware, you are crossing to a different space with new expectations.
During our time of thanks in worship, we’ll recognize Memorial Day and those who gave their lives in service to our country.

You’ll enter a “waiting room.” Our ushers will bring you into the meeting; please join a few minutes early to speed this process.
