The Great Partnership: Science, Religion, and the Search For Meaning

Book group begins new read

Tuesdays at 6:15pm beginning April 5

We were so impressed by Jonathan Sacks’ book, Not in God’s Name, that we decided to read another one.  In The Great Partnership, Rabbi Sacks writes with a clear voice about the necessity of both religion and science, with a breadth and depth of understanding of history, social science, and philosophy.  He presents an argument for the important place of religion in society, albeit one of reduced influence in the larger public sphere.  Everyone is invited to read and discuss on Tuesday evenings.  Although the group meets weekly, you can participate whenever you are able and can ‘join’ at any time.

If you’d like Chip to order a book for you ($15.00), or for more information fill out the form below.

Say No to Religious Violence

Book group begins new read

Tuesdays at 6:15pm beginning January 19th

Rabbi Jonathan Sacks weaves new interpretations of stories from Genesis as he addresses a pressing modern day social problem—religiously motivated violence.  Thoroughly researched and clearly written, this book is helpful as we attempt to be part of the solution rather than part of the ongoing and growing  problem in our community and world.  Everyone is invited to read and discuss on Tuesday evenings beginning January 19th at the church.

If you’d like Chip to order a book for you, or for more information fill out the form below.

Because the book is not yet out in paperback, the cost is $23.00 (a great deal from BookPeople!)

Pride 2014: Extending Our Welcome!

Each year people and organizations around the Palouse come together to show support for LGBTQ brothers and sisters.  We have had a welcoming presence at the Parade and Festival for years in order to make sure everyone knows they don’t have to give up their spiritual lives when they come out!

We’d like to extend our welcome at the Palouse Pride Festival again this year, but we need your help to do this!  When a group of us participate, it is fun and a great way to meet and greet with all kinds of people at the festival, as well as tell them about the church.  Look for the church logo on the 2014 Pride T Shirt!  The walk is easy and at the festival we have a booth, with a canopy for shade and chairs for sittin’.  We need help during the following time periods.

Set up booth at East City Park:  9:00am to 11:00am.

Walk as a group representing CCUCC in the Pride Rally:  a group of us will convene at the starting point behind Safari Pearl, 3rd and Jackson in Moscow. (park on street, not in lot)  We have a few signs and banners but you are welcome to bring your own.

Table shifts:  11:00am to 4:00pm.

Clean up and teardown:  3:30-4:00pm  break down booth, help Chip load up his RAV4 and unload at church back in Pullman.

Your witness to God’s extravagant welcome is important!
