“Kaleidoscope” with Barbara Hadden
The lens shows a myriad of bright pieces: of adults and children, music, art and architecture, peace and justice projects, laughter, tears and celebrations. All these bright pieces are continually rearranging themselves into different patterns of church, congregation, and community. Though events might sometimes scatter us with an unexpected shake, there is a magnetic force that pulls us back in relationship to one another and our earth web. Order of Service

“So What the Heck is it All About?” with Rev. Amy Shaw
Day by day, week by week, year by year we move through life. Is there an ultimate meaning to our journey and our existence, or are we responsible for making meaning and value out of random and linked moments? What is the purpose of humanity? Who are we in the cosmos? Come and explore both the big questions and the journey toward possible answers.

“Interfaith Hospitality” with Georgene Getty, Executive Director
Each year in Cincinnati over 7000 individuals, including over 600 families with children, experience homelessness. Interfaith Hospitality Network (IHN) provides a unique response, so that families “never have to choose between staying together and staying safe”. Georgine Getty, Executive Director of IHN, will describe IHN’s comprehensive programs, which in 2012 helped 96 families shelter safely and secure stable housing. An inspiring speaker, Georgine will illuminate the spiritual roots of hospitality. A split-the-plate offering will be collected during the service, subject to Board approval.
Our Mission: St. John’s is committed to creating a safe and caring community, working for peace and social justice, and celebrating beliefs that respect freedom of thought.
