Maybe now and then we need to let go. Life can feel like a white-knuckle affair, as we cling to hopes and expectations and shoulder our way through challenges and obstacles. But what if we just release our grip on the future and let go of the past – if even for a moment? This Jazz Vespers, with its poetry and music, gives us a glimpse of what’s possible when we take a breath, engage faith, and make room for something fresh and new. So come unwind with us at Claremont Presbyterian. See where the spirit takes you.
This month our theme is “Working for the Common Good.” “Work” and “labor” are not our favorite words. And yet, when we say “labor of love” or “working for the common good,” our perspective changes. All our work is rooted in some higher goal: family, community, social justice, environment, beauty, peace. This Labor Day season Claremont Presbyterian is dedicating Jazz Vespers to people who work for the common good, with music, scripture and poetry that celebrate the human sweat equity that builds a better world. So come, join us for an evening in praise of labor.
