Growing Grandparents is a place for active grandparents and peers to share ideas and experiences during this special time of life. The next meeting is Monday, September 17 at 10:30am in the Parlor. This fall we are reading the book Christianity After Religion: The End of Church and the Birth of a New Spiritual Awakening, by Diana Butler Bass, with conversations about how lives of faith are and will be changing. Our calendar is set month-to-month, most often with Monday mornings at United Parish or Saturday gatherings over a meal. All interested persons are welcome - for more information about the book or the group, contact growinggrandparents@upbrookline.org.

He still does some freelance writing, photography and caught our attention with a Globe Magazine article about living multi-generationally "across the hall" in a Brookline apartment from his grandkids. Check out his website and come meet Bill and Carol Mitchell on March 25 at 5pm for Sunday supper in the parlor. All are welcome! Contact the Church Office at office@upbrookline.org or 617-277-6860.
