Unbecoming

Join us for this service via an on-line Zoom Meeting

Very often, becoming something new involves turning away from or losing something old.  Sometimes this process is slow, sometimes excruciating fast; sometimes it’s intentional, sometimes completely in the hands of others; regardless, becoming almost always includes loss.  This morning, we’ll explore the idea of unbecoming.  We’ll also recognize our newest members!
