The Risk and Beauty of Transformation

Rev. Dara Olandt

Our month-long theme is “Transformation”. What does it mean to shift, change, transform? What is risky and inspiring about transformation? And, what does “bravery” have to do with transformation? We also celebrate an important milestone - the sharing of our final Mission/Covenant statement. This statement will be submitted for an up/down vote at the Congregational Meeting on June 5 following the service.
