Sunday, January 6, 2019: "WHAT THE WILD THINGS ARE: Our Childhoods of Pure Possibility"
Time: 10:30am
Speaker: Rev. Jack Donovan
Worship Associate: Sarah Craig

Are we agreed that human beings, personalities and spirits grow and change over the years - that we are not born as blank slates nor as completed works - that we are born as beings of potential whose development is influenced by both internal and external forces?  I think scientists and philosophers now largely agree on that (though with lots of debate still about the nature of consciousness and the likelihood of free will),  

So as the new year begins, let us take January to look back at childhood and consider what potentials of the human spirit begin to emerge in the early years. to await the influence of will and world.  Our first question is, what are those childhood potentials.  What are those wild things within  us?
