This Week In Religious Exploration

November 27, 2022 – Our Legacy in the Sunflower

Join guest speaker Rev. Mary Ann Barry for Our Legacy in the Sunflower. Community support, joy of giving, and the legacy of love.  What kind of impact do you wish to make in the world?

In addition, we will have music from guest musicians Ben Warwick on cello and Helen Kim on piano.

This is the perspective and reflection of a hospital chaplain. Rev. Barry shares, “My first career was nursing for 15 years.  Then the second was in healthcare marketing & public relations.  The third was my own consulting training company, offering a wellness program to residents of subsidized housing (MHFA) for 18 years throughout Massachusetts. My last career, since 2004, is Interfaith Minister & Chaplain—serving hospitals, hospices, first responders, and healthcare workers.  I also teach Communication Skills, NLP and I am a Certified Reiki Practitioner.”

Welcome to Religious Exploration – November 2022

Michelle Cote, RE Director

The children will begin in the Sanctuary and after lighting a special lantern with the light of our chalice, leave to take part in our RE program. 

A reminder that we have a childcare provider who will be here from 9:45-11:15 am to care for any of our littles (infant through age 4).  

November 6: We will spend time sorting and tallying food donations from our Trunk or Treat event as well as revisit the topic of food insecurity. We will also begin working to create a space for visitors who have a small child by painting and decorating a rocking chair and basket to hold small toys for little visitors.

November 13: We will continue our work on creating a welcoming area for parents of small children.

November 20: We will gather in the church and remain there for this special service for all ages. Childcare will be provided as needed for children ages 4 and under. 

November 27: Games Day! On this holiday weekend, we will gather to have fun while we play games helping us to connect with each other!
