Sunday, November 29 - 10:00 a.m.

Always in Debt
Rev. Don Johnson

Countering the prevailing attitudes where the history of the past is minimized, mythologized or totally ignored, this sermon will give emphasis to our often unrecognized indebtedness to those who have gone before us, both personally and as a culture. Don is a former Methodist minister, a former college chaplain, and Leader Emeritus of the Ethical Society of St. Louis. There will be no Children’s RE classes today. Nursery care provided.
