  • 10:00 am – WORSHIP: "Invitation to the Feast” (Rev. Jake Morrill) – An old Jewish joke says that all Jewish holidays can be boiled down to the idea, 'They tried to kill us, we survived, let's eat.'  Feasting as a ritual way to punctuate life is a phenomenon in most religious traditions.  But 'the feast' is also a way to talk about the vision of our faith, what we've been aiming for all along.
