Pastors' Blog
Kent French

A few years ago, I shared with you in a sermon about a 45-second video that the Mindfulness expert, Jon Kabat-Zinn often shows in his talks. You can watch it here. Go ahead, it will only take you a minute. Best to watch it full screen.

The first time, you just look for how many times the people wearing the white t-shirts pass the balls. And then…if you watch further you may have noticed that you missed something. Something rather significant.

Lenten Midweek Worship

We invite you to our Lenten worship Thursday evenings, March 9 - April 6, at 6:30pm in the Chapel. We hope to experience this service with you and that it is a source of sustenance for you throughout the remainder of your week. All are welcome!


GreenUP Sponsoring Brookline Climate Week Movie Night

Join the GreenUP Ministry Team and friends on Saturday, March 31 @ 6:30pm in Willett Hall.  We are sure that you will find the abridged movies, Where to Invade Next and Time to Choose, followed by discussion, to be both interesting and provocative.


On March 26, United Parish will participate in One Great Hour of Sharing.

Please prayerfully consider participating in this special offering in which we join with Christians of many churches, including all three United Parish denominations:

Each year the Chancel Choir at United Parish in Brookline collaborates with the choir of Temple Shir Tikva in Wayland. This year, we met on Friday, March 3 at Temple Shir Tikva in Wayland and on Sunday, March 5 at United Parish.

Groups are forming to participate in a book study during Lent.  We will discussing the book Healing the Heart of Democracy by Parker Palmer.  Discussion will be centered on Palmer's 5 Habits of the Heart that make Democracy possible.
