Welcome

 

 SEPTEMBER: 28 “The Struggle with Sin.” How do we cope with our own mistakes? A former stock-car driver himself, Rev. Dennis McCarty will use recent travails of Columbus native and NASCAR superstar, Tony Stewart, as sacred text.

 

 OCTOBER 5: Rev. Dennis McCarty will continue our series on struggle with “The Struggle with Cultural Diversity.” Whether Euro-Americans like it or not, globalization means multiculturalism. Particularly with Cummins Diesel bringing in offshore talent, Columbus is becoming a surprisingly rich nest of cultural diversity, right here in southern Indiana. Our strands of connection now stretch to all continents. But how well do we really know one another? Rev. Dennis will challenge our cultural assumptions.

OCTOBER 12: The Struggle with Social ClassOur Intern Minister, Shari Woodbury, will preach on “Roots and Wings,” in this service that explores how experiences with social class have shaped us as individuals and as a congregation. She’ll share some of her family’s story, invite you to participate through the Roots Project, and highlight several other ways you can get involved this fall. Come consider your “roots” and soar on “wings” of universal love.

 

OCTOBER 19: “A Religious Look at Domestic Violence.” October is Domestic Violence Awareness Month. This is more appropriate than ever this year, with headlines streaming from the arrests of multiple National Football League players for various forms of domestic violence. But it’s not just the N.F.L. Plenty goes on right under our noses. Rev. Dennis McCarty will reflect on the forces that push people “over the edge” and the difficulties faced by victims of domestic abuse.

 

OCTOBER 26: We will observe LGBT History Month with the Columbus oral history project, “Threads of our Diversity.” This gripping video was made with support from the Community Foundation of Bartholomew County and the Human Rights Commission. Rev. Dennis McCarty, S. Brian Walters, and Elizabeth Monet will introduce the film and lead discussion afterward.
