The Dump – Rev. Carl Scovel

Posted by on Apr 15, 2018 in Worship Services

Well, Rev. Scovel’s service this Sunday has Changed and Transformed!

He will now be preaching a sermon titled “The Dump”.

Of this sermon, he writes “Recent newspaper articles have lamented the culture of hoarding that afflicts our society. The sermon is deliberately counter-cultural since it points toward what must sometimes be saved.”

Carl Scovel, the son of medical missionaries, was born and grew up in war torn China before attending college and seminary in this country. After three years working at McLean Hospital as a conscientious objector he served The First Parish from 1957 to 1967 and King’s Chapel in Boston until he retired in 1999. As a Christian he was an anomaly in his own denomination but enjoyed his affiliations and his colleagues, some of whom he still sees in bi-monthly Bible classes. He and his wife of 59 years live in Jamaica Plain near two of their three offspring and their families.

1st UU sources of our Living Tradition: Direct experience of that transcending mystery and wonder, affirmed in all cultures, which moves us to a renewal of the spirit and an openness to the forces which create and uphold life.
