Sunday, March 12, 11:00 am — Sunday Worship with Rev. Inanna Arthen, “The Four Freedoms: Freedom of Speech”

Join us on Sunday, March 12 at 11:00 a.m. for a worship service with Rev. Inanna Arthen: “The Four Freedoms: Freedom of Speech.”

In 1941, President Franklin D. Roosevelt named what he called the “four freedoms” that “people everywhere in the world” should be able to have. He stated these as freedom of speech, freedom of worship, freedom from want and freedom from fear. “Free speech” is a concept that has many possible interpretations and often leads to more problems with communication than it solves. What rights can we fairly claim as “free speech?” What are our responsibilities? And should speech and expression ever be curtailed?

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.
