Being Open to Joy

This sermon will be all about “Joy,” that sometimes-elusive feeling of spontaneous happiness, usually denoted by a smile or two. We shall ponder and explore questions such as: Who helps you see the joy in front of you? What were you first taught about “deserving joy”? How has joy surprised you during Covid? How has your definition of joy changed as you’ve grown older? Are you mostly a creator of joy, receiver of joy, notice-er of joy or spreader of joy?  Join us.

This in-person service was held in the sanctuary at the JCSVV, and featured live singing by our musician Susannah Martin.  Beginning this week and going forward, we no longer provide recordings of our Sunday services for later viewing. However, previously recorded services from the past 2 years continue to be available on our YouTube channel and may be easily accessed from the website posting for that week’s service.

For everyone’s protection during the ongoing pandemic, we continue to adhere to several safety protocols against transmission of the Covid-19 virus, including the wearing of masks and social distancing. Please read this news item on our website for complete details prior to attending our in-person services.
