|First Parish is happy to welcome Sierra-Marie Gerfao as our guest preacher during the Sunday morning worship service at 10:30 am on February 18. In the Lenten story, Jesus is led by the spirit into the wilderness alone, where he fasts for 40 days and 40 nights, only to be tempted by the devil. On this first Sunday in Lent 2018, Ms. Gerfao’s sermon, "Connected and Alone,” will consider what it is to be alone. Director of Family Ministries Christopher Scheller will assist during the service.|
Ms. Gerfao, MSW, Mdiv., is the Intern Minister for the Unitarian Universalist Christian Fellowship, an organization serving UU Christians (and UU Christian churches) in the United States and beyond. She is a recent graduate of Yale Divinity School, a ministerial candidate, a lifelong Unitarian Universalist, and a former Unitarian Universalist religious educator. She lives in New Haven with her wife and two children.
During the service, the Senior Choir will present “Amen,” by Emanuele d’Astoria and “Lord, Thou gave us Christ to save us,” by L. T. da Vittoria. Children are encouraged to attend worship. Church School classes will resume on March 4.
