Sunday Service, September 13: “Holy Food to Health Food: Considering the sacred nature of chocolate on International Chocolate Day.”

Montezuma drank it for strength; an early Roman Bishop declared that drinking chocolate didn’t count as breaking a religious fast; and today, in popular culture, chocolate plays a role in religious feats and romantic
courtship.  September 13 is International Chocolate Day, and we’ll consider all the ways even a common sweet treat can be a point of departure for considering our principles and purposes. Service Leader:  Orlita Kissane. Second Sunday collection will go to Oxford Community Choice Pantry.
