Our Upcoming Services:
Note: As we shelter in place, our Sunday worship will be via Zoom on-line. We will post a link here on the Saturday before the service so you can find your way to our cyber experience! For the duration, join us on a Sunday morning at 9:45 to get settled. Service begins at 10 a.m. This week's link:
September 13 – “Ingathering Water Communion,” Rev. Elaine Bomford. We begin the new church year with a Unitarian Universalist tradition, the Water Communion, adapted for Zoom. As rivers converge on their way to the ocean, we gather in unity with one another and the life-giving waters that sustain us. Please bring a printed picture, a postcard, and/or a story telling us about waters you have visited in the recent or far past. If you have saved some actual water from that place to show us, all the better. All ages welcome to share
September 20 – “Dynamics of White Racism” with guest speaker Keith Penniman. Can we turn old white privilege into new white consciousness?
September 27 – “Yom Kippur and Lessons of Forgiveness,” Rev. Elaine Bomford. An age-old Yom Kippur proverb says “The One Who Made You...is always ready to forgive. His mercy, like the rain from heaven, falls on all who seek it.” Drawing upon Jewish wisdom, we reflect upon the High Holy Day theme of forgiveness.
October 4 – “Circle Sunday” at Hastings House, David Ruffin, a new service provider.
Events at Our
Church and Hastings Parish House
Who are we?
We are an active congregation with links to many activities.
Spiritual Discussion Series Continues
All are welcome to join us on a Tuesday at 10:30 a.m. at the Hastings House, followed by lunch (bring your own) at noon.
Thoughts and Meditations:
"If we can muster up that degree of commitment and get away from the uniquely American perception that if something can't be done immediately it isn't worth doing, then I think the Hunger Movement, this small but growing minority of us, can have a truly significant impact."
Meditation on Thursdays
Need a moment?
The meditation group meets every Thursday evening, from 7 – 8 p.m.
at Hastings House in Walpole. It begins with a reading followed by
silent meditation. Everyone is welcome.
What are we reading?
Our Book Club meets on a Monday of the month via Zoom at present. Currently, we are reading “The Woman's Hour,” by Elaine Weiss.

The Mystics Circle is held on the second Friday evening of every month, beginning with a potluck at 5:30pm, and followed by a discussion at the Hastings Parish House in Walpole on a wonderful range of topics.
Our church and parish house offer a traditional setting for your special celebration, including weddings, anniversaries, baptisms, and child naming ceremonies, with our ministers officiating. It is also available for other group parties and events.
Our Welcoming, inclusive Congregation embraces Spiritual Exploration, Social Justice, and Love for each other and the Planet.
