January 5: “Reclaiming Integrity.” Our ministry theme for January is integrity. In this era of political polarization, impeachment hearings, corruption allegations, fake news, and institutionalized denials of truth, personal integrity seems less and less meaningful. What is the role of the liberal religious church in reclaiming integrity? Coordinator: Rev. Josh Pawelek

January 12: “Let Us Begin. Lara Herscovitch is a touring singer-songwriter, former Connecticut State Troubadour, policy social worker and advocate; her guest sermon theme is Let Us Begin. Lara’s song by the same title was inspired by Dr. King’s Beyond Vietnam speech. Her sermon will invite us deeper into our commitment, asking us to reflect on and honor our past, remember the torch(es) of justice we carry and steward for future generations, and courageously move deeper into who we are called to be. Coordinator: Martha Larson

January 19: “Fragility and the Struggle for Beloved Community. “White Fragility” has become a common term in the public discourse on race and racism. As we worship on Martin Luther King Sunday, Rev. Josh discusses the role white fragility plays in holding institutional racism in place. Coordinator: Rev. Josh Pawelek

January 26: “Compass Communion: An Exploration of Integrity. All-Congregation Worship. Join us for stories and songs that guide us in knowing what is true and right in our lives.

February 2: “Roots Where None Ought to Be. Have you ever encountered a tree growing on sheer rock, its roots stretching in unexpected and even unfathomable ways to find moisture?
