This Week in Worship & Religious Education
Sunday, July 14
Rev. Colin Bossen
Music Joel Hiller
Dear Friends and Members of First Parish:
Last Sunday we had worship outside, under one of the old trees outside of the meeting hall. This week, weather permitting, we may do the same. Either way, during the service I will ask you: How can we be present to each other? The common meditation for the week, which we will explore more during the service, is Joy Harjo’s poem “Remember” available on-line at http://www.vcu.edu/engweb/webtexts/Harjo/
Incidentally, I will be posting the texts of my sermons on my blog. Last week’s sermon can be found at http://colinbossen.com/the-latest-form-of-infidelity/13852290
I hope to see you Sunday.
If you have a pastoral issue or would like to get ahold of me for another reason I can be reached at email@example.com or 857.615.4142.
