Sermon: “To Know a Person”

In a special service, Rev. Stephanie and her father, Steve May, reflect together on David Brooks’ book, How to Know a Person. How can we build skills individually and as a community to foster better connections that help us to feel seen, known, and understood? Rev. Stephanie and her dad have enjoyed decades of thoughtful conversations on many aspects of religion, ethics, and life. Steve May, a resident of Grand Rapids, Michigan, has been a lifelong church member and leader. After a long career in agricultural finance, Mr. May became CFO of a non-profit homeless shelter before finally retiring. In retirement, Mr. May is an avid reader (84 books read in 2023!), church choir member, and volunteer tax preparer for low income residents.

For Families: Rev. Hank Peirce will share a story for all ages. Quiet activities will be available for children in the rear of the sanctuary. Childcare is on break for the morning, but returns next week.
