Sunday, March 5: Portrait of an Artist
Rev. Don Cameron

To be at home in creativity is to be at home in your soul, seeking always your essential self.  Please know that the way is often hard, the path is never clear, and the stakes are very high.  Georgia O’Keefe (a painting of hers and her letters) will be our guide.


Sunday, March 12: Wanting to Hear the Arab Viewpoint and Experience
Rev. Don Cameron

I delivered this sermon a week after the 9/11 attacks. My congregation was located near Andrews Air Force Base; in fact, I was drinking my morning coffee in the backyard when I heard the plane hit the Pentagon. Though it happened some time ago, I’d like to share this sermon with you. I believe it still holds relevance.


Sunday, March 19: The Proclamation Emancipation
Lay-Led Worship


Sunday, March 26: Multigenerational Service


Sunday, April 2: A Little Religion in Our Passover Wine
Rev. Don Cameron

The religion I have in mind leads us to bless the world – not out of naïve idealism or piety, or denial of one’s mortality – but we bless the world knowing full well life is hard, and all of us are vulnerable to being lost every day.


Sunday, April 9: Waiting for the Messiah
Rev. Don Cameron

I celebrate Easter.  The orthodox will say that I am a pagan.  The secularists will say that I am a reactionary.  Both have forgotten the origins of the holiday.
