Ask Away!

A fun annual summer tradition – a “question box” service!  What questions do you have for Rev. Karen – spiritual, personal, ethical, philosophical, religious?  What are you curious about?  Rev. Karen will collect written questions in the chat and in the sanctuary, and offer her responses during the service.

  • The Share the Plate for Aug. 27 and Sept. 3 will be the Madison chapter of Veterans for Peace. Veterans for Peace is a global organization of military veterans and allies who lift their voices and experiences in creating a culture of peace. They inform the public of the true causes of war and the enormous costs of wars, with an obligation to heal the wounds of wars. They were nominated by Karol Niemann.
