This Sunday

Sunday November 19th, 2017 – Thanksgiving

Thanksgiving is a historically joyous occasion to celebrate that has become a challenging holiday based on our history in New England. White Europeans are like those loud and annoying distant cousins who showed up for dinner and then refused to behave or go home. How do we atone for our ancestors entitled bad behavior? Yet, giving thanks is an important practice and a way to acknowledge where we come from and the work that we have left to do. Rev. Dr. Marjorie Matty will be sharing her thoughts about the reality of giving thanks in a nation, built on the backs of immigrants, indentured servants and slaves, that now fears immigration.

This Sunday bring a loaf of bread that we will break together during our time in fellowship.

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.
