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”.

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.

He and his wife of 59 years live in Jamaica Plain near two of their three offspring and their families.
