  • Hidden within our wealthy East End towns is a silent community of homeless–men, women, and occasionally a family, living in cars, camped in the woods or sharing a couch in a friend’s apartment. Today, Daniel O’Shea, the Executive Director of Maureen’s Haven, will give these people a voice. You’ll learn the special problems they face and how each of us can help.

  • Law of Attraction, Exploration
  • Speaker: Traci Robinson
  • Worship Associate: Stephen “Tuna” Flores
  • Musician: Abby Fleming
  • What is “The Law Of Attraction”? We’ve heard the term a lot in recent years. What is it exactly? Is it “new age” fluff or is there something real, relevant, and at work in our lives? My personal fascination with the concept has led to curious experiences and observations. We’ll take a look into what the term means, how it works, and why it might be useful to become more familiar with it.

  • The Quality of Mercy
  • Speaker: Stanley Richards, Executive Vice President | The Fortune Society
  • Worship Associate: Mark Potter
  • Musician: Claude Soffel
  • Let’s talk about mercy. Stanley Richards, the Executive Vice President of The Fortune Society and a formerly incarcerated man of color, describes how Norway’s penal system sets a new standard for Western Civilization, guiding offenders to productive lives outside the prison walls. This humane model has cut their incarceration rate to a level 1/10th that of the US and in the process reduced the overall cost of the penal system to the nation. In this service we also learn about The Fortune Society and how you can support their efforts to reform our prisons.
