Melanie DeMore (she/he/they/them), Guest Worship Leader
we can always count on a message of hope from Melanie DeMore, the powerful musician and Oakland-based vocal activist whose anthem “One Foot in Front of the Other” inspired millions after the 2016 election.
Joe Gabaeff (he/him), Guest Worship Leader
With the proliferation of technology, competition for the eyes and ears of people has never been so high. In fact, we humans now employ technology to hook folks into using more technology, many of us unaware of the forces at play: there is a reason some cannot stop watching Netflix, scrolling Reddit, or clicking on virtual carrot crops on a virtual farm. Today, we explore how refining and optimizing engagement with technology, by using technology, has already led us into societally unexamined territory and will only continue to push us further toward a future locked to the screen.
Jeff Palmer (he/him), Lay Worship Leader
At times of distress and disaster we need a resurrection, an infusion of new life and new possibilities. Two thousand years ago the disciples of Jesus needed a resurrection to turn their disaster into hope. Today we look for our own sense resurrection in unsettled times.
Rev. Marsh Agobert (he/him), Worship Leader
We’ve spoken of gratitude before. This is intended to be a return to that subject; among the greatest of all subjects and states of being. It seems particularly important at this point in time when it might be too easy to overlook its magic.
Rev. Dr. Carrie Knowles (she/her), Worship Leader
In the month of Ramadan, our sisters and brothers of the Islamic faith fast every day till evening. This summer on July 30th and again on September 28th, Jews will fast for a day. Christians, Buddhists, Taoists, Jains and Hindus practice fasting. Rev. Dr. Carrie explores the question of how fasting became part of the spiritual life of human beings.
