Our Upcoming Services:
Sunday, January 19 – “Facing White Privilege,” with Rev. Elaine Bomford.
On Martin Luther King Sunday, we tap challenging insights of black authors Maya Angelou, James Baldwin, and Claudia Rankine to understand, from their perspectives, the privilege white people in America exercise.
Sunday, January 26 – “Countering Islamophobia: Understanding our Muslim Brothers and Sisters” – Reverend Dr. M’ellen Kennedy. As Muslims are being maligned nationally and we are being whipped up into fear of Islam and Muslims, what do we really have to be afraid of? Let’s explore where Islamophobia comes from anyway and what it’s about. Come hear stories and experiences from the perspective of a Sufi (the mystical tradition of Islam) and an active participant in the national grassroots effort to counter Islamophobia for the past eight years.
Sunday, February 2 – “Blessings,” Circle Sunday with Wendy Harty, at Hastings Parish House.
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 in the evening. Currently, we are enjoying "Waking up White: And Finding Myself in the Story of Race," by Debby Irving.

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.
