Archives: February 2019
On Tuesday, February 26, 2019, a special session of the United Methodist Church (UMC) decided to strengthen the denomination’s ban on the ordination and marriage of LGBTQIA+ people. The UMC is one of our three denominations.
One of our creation stories tells us that God made the first human being by blowing the breath of life into dust from the ground.
Lenten Dinner Church is returning this year! Join us for a contemplative, candlelit service over a shared meal each Thursday from March 14 through April 11 from 6:15-7:00pm in the Parlor. Doors open at 6pm.
It's time to sign up for a favorite United Parish tradition, Dinners for 8! These dinners are a chance for us to gather and deepen our connections to one another in small groups of around 8 people.
All those who attended the Exploring Membership classes and who would like to officially join United Parish are invited to a reception in the Parlor on Sunday, February 24 at 10am. We will share a light breakfast, take some photos, and talk through the joining litany.
Every year the choirs of Temple Shir Tikva and United Parish in Brookline come together for a much-anticipated sacred music collaboration.
We are gathering as a spiritual community to prepare ourselves for Lent on Saturday, March 2, 9:30-11:30am in the Parlor and Willett Hall.
This year, United Parish is devoting particular attention to fostering intentional diversity and inclusion in our community.
This Lent we will have a series in worship and in discussion groups about what our faith means to us and how do we express it. This is a wide open inquiry that is looking for no right answers, but really digging into how each one of us understands our faith.
