|The First Parish Church in Weston invites all to Sunday morning worship at 10:30 am on March 8. Rev. Dr. Thomas Wintle will be joined in the pulpit by Mr. Habib Rahman of Weston and they will speak about “Christians and Muslims Together: How Do We React to Terrorism?” Mr. Rahman is a CPA and Attorney at Law, and currently serves as an adjunct professor at Suffolk University. He previously served in that capacity at Bentley University. Born in Bangladesh, he has been in the U.S. since 1975, when he came to attend Harvard College. He has been active in the Islamic Center in Wayland, and has even been teaching religion to seven-year olds. Habib has also been involved with the Weston-Wayland Interfaith Action Group (WWIAG) for the past 15 years.|
The Senior Choir will present music by Alan Hovhaness, a 20th century composer who was born in Somerville, MA and later taught at Boston Conservatory. Childcare for infants and toddlers is available beginning at 10:15 am and older children will report directly to their Spring Spirit classes at 10:30.
After worship, there will be a special presentation from 11:45 am - 12:30 pm in the Parish Hall by Curious Creatures of Groveland, MA as a wrap-up to the Winter Wonders “Hogwarts Academy” workshops. This fun and interesting encounter with some exotic animals emphasizes teaching respect and appreciation for all animals.
Later, beginning at 5:30 pm in the Sears Chapel, we will hold the last of our winter late-Sunday services for individuals and families (of any age!). We'll share communion, then explore the meaning and practice of Sabbath in our hectic modern lives. You're enthusiastically invited to stay for a soup-and-bread supper at 6:30.
