From the Pews to the Streets—Putting Our Values into Action as a Congregation.

Thanks so much thands in airo everyone who participated in the activity last Sunday sharing how we live our values every day. Did you see the many cards posted in the Parish Hall with the moving responses? What do we do? Mentor young workers, support environmental causes, cook meals for many, work to free political prisoners, meet the world with positivity, attend to elders, smile with love, donate blood, mentor a teenage girl, donate 5% of income, adopt organic gardening and solar panels, to name just a few.

This week we are asking you to join other folks in signing up for social justice activities to do as groups from First Parish. It’s important to follow our individual passions to heal our community and our world but it’s also very powerful to join forces with others who share the same interests—there is different energy and sometimes more impact when a group of passionate people work together on a project.

In the FPS Parish Hall, you will find sign-up sheets for activities suggested by our congregation last spring. See if there is an activity that speaks to you. There will also be sheets for you to provide us with some new activity ideas. As Liz Rust said last Sunday, “Coming together is a beginning; keeping together is progress; working together is success.”
