This Weekend in Worship
Why Religion Matters
Every generation since the scientific revolution of the 1600's have wondered if religion is just a vestige of a primitive past and full of nonsensical claims. But religion is something far larger and sweeping than merely a set of truth claims. Religion seems to be an expression of something deep within the human spirit - a longing for that which transcends our mundane reality. Join Dr. Jim Keck for a three part sermon series on Why Religion Matters.

There's Nothing "Non" or Absent in "Nonviolence"
Preeta Bansal to Guest Preach at 11:59am
October 2019 marks the 150th birth anniversary of Mahatma Gandhi, a modern apostle of nonviolence who was inspired greatly by Jesus' Sermon on the Mount, and who in turn inspired Dr. King, Mandela, and many others. Nonviolence is not just the absence of violence, and passive resistance is far from passive. Both strategies are active assertions of soul force and love. In these polarizing times, Preeta Bansal explores the power of the subtle and of invisible inner work as a force for external social change, and considers ancient and modern tools for transmuting and transforming conflict.
Preeta Bansal has spent more than 30 years in senior roles in government, global business, and corporate law practice – as General Counsel and Senior Policy Advisor in the Executive Office of the U.S. President (White House), Solicitor General of the State of New York, partner and practice chair at Skadden Arps, global general counsel in London for one of the world’s largest banks, a US diplomat and Chair of the US Commission on International Religious Freedom, and law clerk to US Supreme Court Justice John Paul Stevens. She has advised on the drafting of the constitutions of Iraq and Afghanistan.
