Sunday, January 12, 2020: Enlightment Now

Part of working for equity and justice is to try and make more of life’s goodnesses available to everyone. Over time, if we squelch and reject those goods, not only is life miserable for us, we make it really difficult for us to participate in society, be friends or coworkers, love anyone, or keep up our efforts to make a more equitable and just society that’s worthwhile and full of blessings for every one. We’re not working to make us all more equally suffering. If that’s our notion of justice, it is a spirit-destroying one, and all we must do is increase the misery of folks in this world.

Rev. Naomi King

The news is mostly gloom and doom, and it is easy to believe the world is going to hell in a handbasket. Lisa deGruyter has been reading Enlightenment Now: The Case for Reason, Science, Humanism, and Progress and will share some thoughts on humanism, Buddhism, both kinds of Enlightenment, and reasons for optimism.

Join us for Worship:

Our services are Sundays at 11 a.m.  at the Progressive Women’s Association Event Center, 305 Washington Ave. in downtown Clarksburg, behind the Courthouse. There are classes for children and adults 10 to 10:45 am, and a coffee gathering before the service. More about us.

Classes and worship are replaced by Spiritual Outings on the first Sunday of each month during the summer, with brief worship, a potluck picnic, and outdoor activities. The schedule is in the sidebar.

We would love to have you come worship with us.

Children are welcome.  There is childcare and an activity for young children during the service.

The building is wheelchair accessible, with an accessible restroom.


The schedule for the current adult religious education class is here.
