Worship Services

April 29th - Multigenerational Service on Kindness

During this service we’ll be sharing in small groups stories of kindnesses we have received - through life, through books and poetry, through music, through so many experiences. It will be an opportunity to learn more about what kindness can mean from multiple perspectives. Come prepared to share or to listen!


May 6th - David’s Ankles

Michelangelo’s statue of David is a gorgeous piece of art, yet it has been the subject of great concern given certain weaknesses inherent in the statue. What do the composition, creation, and conservation of this priceless work have to tell us about human endeavor?


May 13th - Nurturing Others

On this Mother’s Day, we’ll consider one of the qualities exalted as part of motherhood - nurturing others - and how so many, of different genders and family roles, can participate in this nurturing.


May 20th - Replacement of Flags at High Street Cemetery

We will tackle one of our annual community service projects, gathering at the High Street Cemetery to replace the worn flags on veterans’ graves with new ones for the Memorial Day holiday. There are jobs for all ages and abilities, from energetic walkers to skilled sitters. Afterwards, we will return to Second Parish for coffee hour.


May 27th - Scarred but Sustained

Having experienced the horrors of World War I firsthand, C.S. Lewis and J.R.R. Tolkien found a way to re-create a world of hope in the midst of the Lost Generation. Looking at their use of imagination to tap into the power of legend, this sermon will honor Memorial Day by considering the human power to make meaning out of brutal experience.
