The Healing Journey (Rev. Catie preaching)

Sunday April 28, 2024 at 10:30 am, livestreamed to YouTube from the Sanctuary.

As we close our theme month about Wonder and honor the sacred story of Passover, we’ll reflect on how to cultivate and reactivate our senses of awe, gratitude, and hope after traumatic experiences, personal and communal. We’ll also light a candle for international Lesbian Visibility Week. Our First Parish Players will offer klezmer music, and all of our children’s and youth religious exploration programs are meeting: Our Whole Lives and Neighboring Faiths right at 10:30, younger children’s RE after the service’s Time for All Ages, Coming of Age at 4 pm, and Senior Youth Group at 5:30.
