The Possibility of Grace, Mr. Robert Kinslow

Posted by on Jan 20, 2019 in General News, Sunday Service Copies

We welcome back Rob Kinslow to our pulpit to preach on “The Possibility of Grace”

Rob asks,

“Would we recognize grace if it greeted us at our own door? Of the many ways to increase the benevolent gift of grace in our lives, one way is to recognize it when it happens. And one way to recognize it is to realize that grace is possible in every moment. On this Sunday we will sharpen our spiritual lens, the better to spot grace everywhere.”

Rob Kinslow has been a Unitarian Universalist since 1995 and a member of First Parish of Sudbury since 2000. Prior to Sudbury he was an active member of First Parish in Watertown.

Currently Rob serves as vice president for life sciences at KHJ, a Boston marketing agency. He is also preparing to become a Unitarian Universalist minister and currently attends Starr King School for Ministry in Berkeley, California. He serves as an itinerant preacher for area UU congregations, including First Parish Church in Taunton, where he is finishing a 2-year ministerial internship. Rob lives in Medford with his wife, Janice Zazinski, in addition to two furry companions of the canine persuasion, Daisy and Petey. He is the father of two grown sons, Jay and Dan, who live in Quincy and Tewksbury.

Religious Exploration on January 20th

Religious Exploration- This Sunday marks our third week in Religious Exploration Studying our neighboring faith Judaism. This week the children will continue to discuss the significance of several Jewish rituals and holidays including the building of a sukkah, Passover, Yom Kippur, and Hanukkah. Each week we will study several Hebrew words, talk about the Torah, and this week’s special class will include trying new or familiar foods from the Jewish culture!
About Neighboring Faiths: This month we will begin to explore the concepts of Judaism in preparation for a Neighboring Faith’s visit later in the Spring. The children will be learning about this monotheistic religion during the month of Grace, gaining a better understanding of this Abrahamic religion with the Torah as it’s foundational text. Our exploration will include the philosophy, religion, language, and culture of the Jewish people. Later months in 2019 will include lessons in Islam, and Catholicism as well as trips to meet groups of their peers from our neighboring places of gathering. If your children are interested in participating in the visit portion of Neighboring Faiths in the Spring must attend at least Two Sundays of learning to prepare for the visit. If for some reason they are unable to meet this requirement please contact Michele Barkhauer, Director of Religious Education at First Parish of Sudbury to make alternate arrangements for learning opportunities!
