|We cordially invite all to Sunday morning worship at 10:30 on September 28, when we will celebrate international and interfaith connections. Last June, a dozen First Parishioners visited our partner Unitarian church in Torda, Romania, in the region of Transylvania. Larry Coburn, Dirk Coburn, Kathy Spier, Georgia Foote and William Sano will offer reflections of their visit during worship. The Senior Choir will present music in both Hungarian and English in honor of our Torda brethren and the Coffee Hour following worship will include some special Hungarian treats. Children will report directly to Church School at 10:30 am for chapel and classes. First Parish is wheel-chair accessible and hearing-assist devices are available. We hope you’ll join us!|
After worship, at noon in the church library, there will be a planning meeting for the establishment of a Weston Round Table for the purpose of discussing problems of and possible solutions for relationships that involve violence. We welcome anyone with an interest to join us; a last-minute decision to attend is fine, but if you know ahead that you plan to come, please call the Church Office (781.893.7798).
Later in the afternoon, we will take a “road trip” to Roxbury to visit the First Church in Roxbury, home of the U.U. Urban Ministry. We’ll learn about the historical significance of this congregation, founded in 1632, and its role in establishing Harvard College, Roxbury Latin School and the Revolutionary War. And we will hear more about how the U.U. Urban Ministry puts faith into action through direct service, education and outreach to Roxbury and surrounding communities. Then we will walk down the hill to the Islamic Society of Boston Cultural Center, where we will explore the architecture and spiritual features of the Center and have a chance to discuss how we can all foster interfaith dialogue. Carpooling is encouraged; if interested in attending, please contact the Church Office.
The Grade 8 Covenanting Year Class will meet from 5:00 pm - 6:30 pm in the Youth Room.
