HHRLA Celebrates Martin Luther King, Jr. Day

Sunday, January 15, 3:00 pm at the Lutheran Church

Last year we celebrated this holiday with an MLK seder at the Temple. This year we will celebrate at the Lutheran House of Prayer, 916 Main Street, with a program of folk music featuring the singer Kristen Graves. Kristen has performed with Pete Seeger and Peter Yarrow; Guy Davis and Harry Belafonte and many others. Humanitarian that she is, Kristen has started the "Just Be Nice" political party which welcomes everyone and features that slogan on t-shirts and stickers. Kristen will perform on Sunday, January 15th at 3:00, along with members of the Hingham Hull Religious Leaders Association who are also experienced in folk singing, including Rev. Ken Read-Brown. You and your children will want to be there!


Ladies' Night Out, Thursday, January 26

We plan to gather at a local restaurant for appetizers and a drink.  No one needs to cook!  Stay tuned for more details.

Worship Services

January 1st – Circle Worship in Cushing Hall

We will gather for music, shared insights on the holiday, and coffee.  All ages are welcome and invited (but certainly not required!) to bring a story about starting something new to share in the circle.


January 8th – Guest Preacher

Rev. Dick Fewkes, Minister Emeritus, First Parish of Norwell, will speak on “The Courage to Change – a Reflection on the Serenity Prayer.”


January 15th –  A Dream Shared

Martin Luther King’s “I Have a Dream” speech offered a vision for all Americans. This sermon will explore what it might have felt like to share that dream in 1963, and what it feels like now, over half a century later.


January 22nd – Do You Hear What I Hear?

We each hear differently, interpreting what others say in light of not just their tone and purpose but also our own experience and priorities.  What’s the point of trying to understand how others will respond to a message? How could we even accomplish such a thing?


January 29th – Pulpit Exchange with

Rev. Ken Read-Brown, First Parish, Hingham

Ken’s sermon title, “I’ll Meet You There,” is taken from well-known lines of the 13th century Sufi poet, Rumi. What does Sufism, by many considered to be the mystical side of Islam, have to offer us – and the world – now, spiritually and otherwise?
