Worship ServiceSunday October 01, 2023
10:30AM - 12:00PM
“An Open Palm,” Rev. Sophia preaching, with Carole Katz, Samantha Eyster, Charlyn Bethell, and Guy Urban. We are living through a time of widespread historical reckoning and awakening–tracing our fingers over all that we thought we knew, the heritage narratives we have been taught, and asking ourselves whether they convey the whole story, or much truth at all anymore. This service will explore the spiritual difficulties and delights that come with opening ourselves up to new truths, as well as letting old ones…go. We will also partake in a ritual to bless our building and reflect on the possibilities that our now blank walls hold. Slow down and give yourself the gift of church this Sunday.
All are welcome! We offer in person services (masks suggested) that are also streamed via Zoom. If you would like the Zoom link for the service, please contact email@example.com by noon on Friday.
As Unitarian Universalists, we affirm the inherent worth of all people and embrace the free search for truth without a creed.
Rev. Sophia Lyons is the 30th settled minister of First Parish Watertown.
The First Parish of Watertown, established in 1630, is one of the oldest parishes in the United States.
In Our Own Words
FPW is a gentle, caring community where I learn and grow. It’s also a place that appreciates what I have to give.
These Zoom services mean so much to me at this difficult time… it’s good enough that I remember I’m part of this community. It’s a lifeline during the pandemic.
We’re a small church that acts big. We have some very energetic people who can do a lot.
