Image result for liberal and conservative values

Our world is complicated and many of us feel threatened by the erosion of the values we embrace. Clarity comes by exploring the relationship, the connection between these opposing ideas. Clarity gives us the foundation from which we can move ourselves, our community, and our culture forward in a positive direction.

Please join First Parishioner, Joe Foster, for worship this Sunday when he will guide us on how we reconcile our division between liberal and conservative values, both in our own internal lives and our interactions with others.

Joseph Foster, Worship Leader
