What’s Going On?

Our nation is divided, perhaps like never before, or arguably, more than any other time in this century. How does this division, this cultural warfare, show up in our daily lives, in our relationship with others and within ourselves? Today’s message recognizes the assault upon our democratic republic and ponders the same question that songwriter and singer Marvin Gaye asked in 1971: “What’s Going On?”

This in-person service was held in the sanctuary at the JCSVV, located at 100 Meadowlark Drive, and featured live singing by our musician Susannah Martin.


“Deep Conviction” by Vaclav Havel

“It is my deep conviction that the only option is a change,

A change in the sphere of the spirit,

In the sphere of human conscience.”
