To Live Deliberately
One hundred and seventy years ago, Henry David Thoreau built a cabin in the woods at Walden Pond in Concord, MA, so that he might "learn to live deliberately." Most of us are not in a position to leave it all behind and move to the woods. Can we still learn to live deliberately?

Upcoming Community Events at First Parish

Wednesday, January 21 (7:00 - 8:30 p.m.)
How Do You Live?: Exploring the Life and Faith of World Religions
The January 21 discussion of this ongoing series will continue to explore Hinduism. In addition to doing the readings, participants are invited to choose a Hindu deity, research him or her, and tell the group about the deity and what it might be like to be a worshipper. Copies of the readings (from World Religions: The Great Faiths Explored and Explained, by John Bowker; and some excerpts from Hindu scriptures) are available at church. The class meets monthly at First Parish on the third Wednesday, 7-8:30 p.m., and is led by Pamela Barz of First Parish UU and Grant Barber from St. Luke’s Episcopal Church.

Read Pam's sermons and our latest newsletter to discover what's happening at First Parish UU.

Regular events in our parish life include book group discussions, walking meditations, religious education classes and multigenerational social events, men's ministry, prayer shawl knitting, and social justice initiatives!
