|The First Parish Church in Weston, located at the corner of Boston Post Road, School Street and Church Street, invites all to join us for Sunday morning worship on November 29th at 10:30 am. We are happy to welcome The Rev. Mary Margaret Earl as guest preacher. Rev. Earl was installed as Executive Director and Senior Minister of the Unitarian Universalist Urban Ministry on November 1st of this year. She arrived at the UU Urban Ministry in John Eliot Square in Roxbury last December, after spending the previous 10 years at McAuley Ministries, a faith-based nonprofit in Providence, RI that provides food, shelter and clothing to those who were homeless or at risk of becoming so. She also is past president of the Board of the Rhode Island Coalition for the Homeless, recipient of the 2014 Heroes of Faith Award from the Rhode Island State Council of Churches for her interfaith work, and served on the Pro Bono Advisory Board, which brings together large Providence law firms and underserved communities in need of free legal assistance. She will be speaking on “Broken Hearted and Open Wide: Reflections on Race and Justice.” After worship, Rev. Earl will lead a discussion about the Urban Ministry and its programs in the Parlor.|
November 29th is the first Sunday in Advent and we will light the first candle in the Advent wreath. The Senior Choir will present “Give Thanks Unto the Lord,” by Alexander Arkhangelsky and J. S. Bach’s “Blessing, Glory and Wisdom.” Childcare for young children will be available beginning at 10:15 am and older children are encouraged to attend worship with their families. Church School classes will resume on December 6th.
We hope to welcome you to First Parish.
