Sunday Service: An Explosive Legacy: Reflections on Nobel Day

Alfred Nobel’s family fortune came from new innovations with arms manufacturing and explosives. When his brother died, a French newspaper published Alfred’s obituary by  mistake, and in their obituary they noted that he was responsible for finding ways of killing people faster than ever before.  Distressed, Alfred changed his will to create and fund the Nobel Prize, which continues to this day, and is still presented on December 10, the anniversary of Alfred Nobel’s death. Come join Diane Wright as we consider the idea of “legacy,” and the lenses through which we see our own lives. Service leader: Jennifer Blue
