LGBTQ Pride Weekend
In June, United Parish will celebrate its commitment to God’s love and welcome for all people through worship and prophetic witness. We invite you to walk with us in Boston's Pride Parade on June 8th and to join us for a special worship service with our guest Rev. Dr. Pamela Lightsey on June 9th.
All Are Welcome at the Table
Our 2013 Stewardship Campaign builds on the Maundy Thursday and Easter message that all are welcome at the table and we are called to keep Jesus alive by applying our talents as his hands and feet in today's world. Please join us in small groups, through service, and by giving generously.
Journey to Adulthood
Our seventh and eighth graders will be blessed during worship on May 19th as they take the first steps on their journey to adulthood. Each student will receive a Book of Wisdom containing favorite Bible verses, prayers, and quotations contributed by the United Parish congregation over the years.
Lord God, we don't know how to pray. This immense disaster feels overwhelming. We can only imagine how the victims feel, And we are so many miles away that we feel helpless. Surround those directly involved with your loving presence. Comfort the families of the dead and injured, Sustain those waiting for word of those they love.
Jesus told his followers, “...blessed are your eyes, for they see, and your ears, for they hear.” (Matthew 13:16) Jesus was talking about recognizing God’s wisdom and truth embedded in the parables he told. He called on them to see and hear the deeper meaning in his ‘figures of speech.’ Lately, I have been noticing God’s presence in a different, more literal kind of seeing.
On Sunday, April 28th, the Youth Choir sang at a Brookline Community Housing complex. The residents recently pitched in to buy themselves a piano and are eager to have some music in their halls. Our youth choir has expressed great interest in sharing their music with those who might need a little more music in their day!
