February's Theme: The Many Forms of LoveOur worship theme for February is “The Many Forms of Love”, This month we will explore 4 different ways of loving: Lovingkindness, Befriending our own Hearts, Love in Community and Beyond, and AbidingHealing ConversationsIn keeping with the commitment in our First Parish covenant to care and be present to one another in our joys and sorrows, Rev. Ellen and the Pastoral Care Team offer this grief and loss group on the second and fourth Mondays of the month to nurture and hold a sacred space to share stories, experiences, and emotions around love, loss and grief in a spirit of mutual care and deep listening. This is an ongoing group that folks in our First Parish community can join during the year, while maintaining it as a confidential and supportive space.
If you are interested on joining, please contact Rev. Ellen
