Emergence of the New South
Mateo Arnold, Joan Tilghman and Rev. Cayer, service leaders.

The musician, Astor Piazzolla, felt the pull of Argentina always pulling him south, toward home.  What's the pull in our South today?   What's newly emerging here that's pulling us home?

Easter: A Surging of Power
Rev. Deborah Cayer, worship leader

This morning we celebrate the power of new life, even after the darkest times, with readings, stories and music.  Our sources are the Christian tradition, and the wisdom of Dr. Martin Luther King, Jr. who was killed 50 years ago this April 4.  What surging power enables us to move forward with love?  We end the service with the Hallelujah Chorus for All.

Bring a flower this morning to add to our common bouquets.  Later in the service we’ll each choose a different flower; this is an affirmation that in community we each have unique gifts to give and receive from one another.

Stewards of Self  
Rev. Deborah Cayer, worship leader.

 This morning's guest musicians are Beats in the Bones, a local women's a capella group. With drums. 

What is self care? Is it a spa date that leaves us looking really good and totally focused on our self? How might self care help us go beyond the limits of our small self so we can serve others well?

Stewards of Justice
Rev. Deborah Cayer, worship leader.

Paul Baerman, guest musician.

A wise steward is one who not only takes care of someone else's treasure - they care for it so well that the treasure increases. What if we approached our Justice work as stewards? What is in our care? What's the best way to make it increase?

Dream a World
Rev. Jacqueline Brett, worship leader

What does it mean to cast a vision of justice for all people, all beings, our earth? And if none of us are free until all of us are free, what will freedom look like when it comes?

The Fullness of Universalism
Rev. Deborah Cayer, worship leader.

The Eno River Singers create this morning’s special music.

Universalism has a big promise: that all belong, all are worthy of inclusion and salvation. It’s no small offer, so how on earth do we even begin to live into this promise?
