Join us on Sunday, April 9 at 11:00 a.m. for a worship service with Rev. Inanna Arthen: “Sacred Fools.”
Senator Al Franken, in the hearings for Supreme Court nominee Neil Gorsuch, said, “I had a career in identifying absurdity, and I know it when I see it.” The least consenquential of April’s holidays is April Fool’s Day–and to some of us, it seems as though every day has become April Fool’s Day and we could all have a full-time job identifying absurdity. What better time to explore the concept of the Sacred Fool, and the role humor, humility and simplicity play in our lives?
We’re following our wintertime custom of holding Sunday service downstairs in the Parish Hall to conserve on heating costs. The younger RE students will join us for the first part of the service, as the older kids meet for their “Questing” class. At 11:30, the younger students will have their “Beginnings” class while the older ones come out to participate with the adults. (If the weather turns unexpectedly very warm, we may move upstairs.)
