Sunday, February 8- What is Love? Rev. Audette Fulbright
Rev. Audette joins us from Cheyenne as she and Rev. Kelly "exchange pulpits" today. Audette is passionate about keeping her sermon content a mystery- believing two things: one, that we come to church in order to live our faith in community, and two, that every preacher must have the opportunity to respond to the last-minute call of the spirit as well as the needs of the day. So join her this Sunday as we discover together "What is Love?"

Marcia Free, a member of the American Nurses Association and a nurse for 24 years, will lead this circle. It will include time for structured personal reflection on facing your own mortality and in the process living more fully. All participants will have the opportunity to share their perspectives, tell their stories, and listen deeply. In addition, this circle will offer an exploration of “advance directives” (legal documentation of your wishes for end-of-life care) as a pragmatic step toward preparing for your own death, and to help make talking about death a more comfortable conversation.
