What I Learned On My Summer Vacation

JRR Tolkien's seminal fantasy novel "The Hobbit" was originally entitled "There and Back Again," detailing the wild and winding journey of the endearing hobbit Bilbo Baggins throughout misty mountains far away from home. After his adventure concluded, Bilbo found his home to be a very different place than he remembered it-- not because anything in his hobbit-hole had changed, but because HE had. In this service, Rev. Ilene will preach on what we gain and what we give up when we travel, and will share wisdom gleaned from her own recent summer travels.

This month's theme: Beauty

Speaker: Rev. Ilene Kaur Tompkins-Gillispie
