This Sunday

Sunday October 26th, 2014 – Guest Preacher - Rob Kinslow

 “Let’s Get Small”

This Sunday we extend a warm welcome to

Rob Kinslow a candidate for the Unitarian Universalist ministry

A bit from Rev. Kinslow: The writer Kurt Vonnegut once offered that church is a place to daydream about God. I think many of us come to church on Sunday with lots of questions fueling those daydreams-about God, about life, about the presence of good and evil in the world. Often when we ponder a supreme something, when we think about something as vast and mysterious as infinity, we think big-the expansive and expanding universe, even what some call the “multiverse.” I’d like to suggest that infinity runs both ways, and that if you think small, and smaller still, it’s possible to get just a little closer to the answers to any burning questions you might have. In this Sunday’s service I’ll offer ways to imagine infinite smallness and how such imagining-said another way, a welcoming of provocative thinking, an openness to pondering the imponderable-might help us stand on firmer ground, holier ground.

 

Sunday Worship begins at 10:00 AM and will be followed by a fellowship hour in the parish hall. Religious education and Childcare are available. First Parish of Sudbury is a Unitarian Universalist welcoming congregation, encouraging and celebrating the participation of all people regardless of theological belief, sexual orientation, or gender identity. If you are a seeker of scientific, technological, or spiritual meaning in life you will be warmly welcomed.

The First Parish of Sudbury Meeting House is located at 327 Concord Road, across from Town Hall. For more information about upcoming events, visit fpsudbury.org or call 978-443-2043.
