Nov 01st                      “What to Say to Our Children”

I don’t have to tell you that our country is on the “eve” of an election.   In the months leading up to this, fear and anxiety has risen along with the violence we witnessed in language and acts.  As our media is filled with these ideas and images, do you wonder how the children in your life make meaning of all of this?

Let’s talk about what you might say to them.

Nov 08th                     “Becoming A Gardener of Community”

At this writing I don’t know who will win the election for President.  What I do know is that our job as individuals is the same no matter who wins.  With some ideas inspired by Parker J. Palmer, I invite you to today’s service to discuss the work needed for the healing and reconciliation of our country.

Nov 29th                     “Spirituality for These Times”

Ken Read-Brown will be our preacher on Sunday, November 29, exchanging virtual pulpits with Bob, who will be preaching for the Old Ship congregation.  Ken has been the minister at First Parish in Hingham (Old Ship Church) since 1987.

In Ken’s message he asks, “Do our spiritual lives need to be any different from any other time? Or is it just more important than ever to seek deep spiritual grounding in the midst of challenges from personal to global”?
