Cultivating Relationship with Nature
An Online Service with Rev. Stephen Shick


“A human being is a part of the whole called by us Universe, a part limited in time and space. He experiences himself, his thoughts and feeling as something separated from the rest, a kind of optical delusion of his consciousness. This delusion is a kind of prison for us, restricting us to our personal desires and to affection for a few persons nearest to us. Our task must be to free ourselves from this prison by widening our circle of compassion to embrace all living creatures and the whole of nature in its beauty.”
― Albert Einstein


Covid has given many of us both the need and the desire to “go out into nature.” The more you cultivate your relationship with all creatures and plants living on earth the more you begin to realize you can’t “go out into nature” because you are an integral part of the interdependent web of all existence. This Sunday, October 24, we will explore how this realizing can change your life and how you live it.


Virtual Social Hour will follow the service
