All is Change, Rev. Catie preaching


Sunday March 17th, 2024 at 10:30 am, livestreamed to YouTube from the Sanctuary.

In Octavia Butler’s speculative fiction novel Parable of the Sower, we are introduced to the founder of the Earthseed religion. Earthseed’s foundational verse is:

“All that you touch
You Change.
All that you Change
Changes you.
The only lasting truth
Is Change.
Is Change.”

For this Sunday’s service, we’ll explore change, impermanence, and transformation in our natural world, honoring the coming spring equinox. We’ll also honor St. Patrick’s Day, and the First Parish Choir will offer two beautiful pieces.
