A Musical Exploration of Article II
This year at General Assembly in Pittsburgh, a great discussion was held surrounding what we call “Article II” of our Bylaws, Principles, and Purposes. Come hear a musical exploration of this conversation that is being held all across the country and learn about a new way of thinking of our values: Justice, Equity, Generosity, Interdependence, Diversity, and Transformation, with Love always at the center.

Advocates for the Homeless and Those in Need (AHTN)
In the last week of November this year, the nighttime low temperature dropped in the 20’s six out of seven days. Just imagine what that must feel like to those who are forced to live outside! Advocates For The Homeless And Those In Need (AHTN) runs the Code Blue Program in Lower Bucks County. Code Blue volunteers transports people in need of shelter during the coldest days of the year. These people are provided with a warm protected place to sleep from December through March .AHTN is very busy this time of year and can always use volunteers.
Additionally, AHTN, along with many local religious groups coordinates a free meal program for the homeless. Unfortunately, in late October their 2nd transportation vehicle was totaled in a traffic accident and they are very much in need of another vehicle.

about our Touchstone theme which gives our Sunday services a guiding foundation.
This year's overarching theme is
Reimagining the Common Good
This requires looking at society and ourselves because the common good is always in competition with individual needs and interests. The “letter” of the common good includes fundamental rights and freedoms but the "spirit" of the common good presupposes every person's inherent worth and dignity and seeks justice, equity, and compassion in human relations.
December's Theme is
Despite adversity, hope is a life orientation that believes we can prevail. Hope is a shapeshifter that adapts in the face of reality to “encourage” us, which means “to put heart into.” The common good hangs in the balance in the struggle between hope and fear. Hope overcomes what William James called a “civic temper,” which helps us transcend the drive for individual survival to focus on the common good and create a shared meaningful existence.
