Belonging is a basic human need. We identify ourselves by who we belong with, as members of families, residents of town or cities, and members of political parties, churches, and possibly baseball teams. The Rev. Bonnie Dlott returns to our pulpit to help us explore what “belonging” to a religious community can mean, explicitly and implicitly, and consider why the experience of “belonging” can be transformative. Worship Leader – Rev. Bonnie Dlott, Worship Associate – Megan Johnson, Music – Chris Perske, Technical Support – Emily Greenslade.
