Worship Services at 9 and 11 a.m.
“Mission: Failure” – Rev. Molly Housh Gordon
When we have clarity of mission, we inevitably will fail to live up to that clarity. How do we keep going when we mess it up, re-center ourselves when we get off track, and accept a change of course when our mission no longer fits the calling of the moment? What emerges when failure is part of our mission?
