Quenching Our Thirst

Are you thirsty? As we move into the second month of a new year together, Reverend Bill asks the question: what do you thirst for? Justice? Equality? Love? What will quench your thirst? We will explore this topic together fromthe service that was cancelled for January.


As we approach the week of St. Valentine’s Day, Reverend Bill returns to examine the idea of “Agape.” What is the true meaning of this Greco-Christian term? Does it include the emotions and feelings in relationships? Or can agape stand alone?
