Reflections on Juneteenth. Just the week before this service Congress passed and the President signed a bill making Juneteenth a national holiday. The Father’s day service originally scheduled was replaced to reflect upon this event.

We spend a lot of time focusing on what we have in common. Let’s spend a little time considering just how different we are from one another as well.
We’ll tell the story of Anna Jarvis, who worked hard to promote Mother’s Day and the spent the rest of her life trying to repeal it.
We’ll honor this Islamic holy season by learning about the culture and traditions of Ramadan.

We’ll use the theme of Valentine’s Day to explore the depths and meaning of our most important attachments with one another – how they shape and enrich our lives.
