August 21-“Naming and Claiming Our Faith.” During a 1992 vice-presidential debate, Admiral James Stockdale famously asked “Who am I? Why am I here?” He got a lot of heat for seeming to not know what he was doing. But in fact, do any of us really know for sure? For his first service and sermon with us as minister of Hopedale, Bruce will explore the need to explore these timeless questions for ourselves and as a faith community. Knowing what we no longer believe is not enough to sustain us. We must strive to name and claim the spiritual truths that inform our lives and imagine new ways to put them into action to transform our world. Leader: Bruce Beisner, Student Minister.
