5/26/24 (10:30 a.m.): “Public Memory, Creative Art, and Theology” – Five Points Cluster Shared Service hosted by First Parish Unitarian Universalist Canton, 1508 Washington Street, Canton, MA 02021-2267

UUCanton

The Five Points Cluster congregations choose a specific Sunday once every month or so where we gather to share worship together at one of our churches. It is a wonderful way to experience different kinds of worship, get to know our neighbors and siblings in faith, and offer hospitality to one another.

 

This Worship Service will be hosted by First Parish Unitarian Universalist Canton

 

Led by Rev. Dr. Michelle Walsh

Five Points Cluster Shared Service

As we honor Memorial Day, how can we broaden our reflection on the theological meaning of public memory as conveyed through public creative art? What role do public ritual and public art play in trauma responsiveness and in cultivating our social and spiritual moral imaginations?


This service will be virtual only on Zoom.

2024-May-4_700_PM_Picking_Up_Stones Flyer

5/4/24: “Picking Up Stones: An American Jew Wakes to a Nightmare” at First Parish Unitarian Universalist Canton (7:00 p.m.)

A “one-woman show by Sandra Laub performing in multiple voices the issues at heart in the Middle East. This show sold out in Rhode Island when performed there, and we are anticipating that for its showing in Canton as well where we are only offering 100 tickets for advance sale (not at the door). You can see more information in the attached flyers, and we hope you publicize it in your respective congregations with those who might be interested and find it a valuable opportunity for processing. For those who need to know this, we will have security present, and we are located directly next to the Canton police station. We are circulating this in limited circles, however – and the Canton synagogues are on board with this happening.”

April 27, 2024 BOLA Dinner & Raffle

4/27/24: BOLA 2024 Dinner & Raffle at First Parish of Stoughton, MA, 790 Washington Street, Stoughton, MA 02072-2940 (6:00 p.m.)

BOLA 2024 Dinner & Raffle at First Parish of Stoughton, MA, 790 Washington Street, Stoughton, MA 02072-2940.

April 27, 2024 BOLA Dinner & Raffle

Details: “‘Bola’ is First Parish’s annual Dinner & Raffle event. No one knows exactly where the name Bola came from, but we suspect it’s related to the ‘Tombola’ raffles that are popular at small-town fetes in England.

What does it look like at First Parish Stoughton? Dinner with a lot of fun and many chances to win prizes. One thing that makes Bola distinct is that if your raffle ticket wins a prize, it goes back into the basket and could win again! (Theoretically, one single ticket could win all the prizes! Though we’ve never seen that actually happen, we’ve seen plenty of instances where the same ticket won multiple prizes in a night.)

Bola 2024 will be April 27 at 6:00pm.

  • Dinner tickets are $15 for ages 13 and up; $7 for ages 12 and under

  • Dinner reservation deadline is Monday April 22

  • Dinner is a Pasta Blowout! Different kinds of pasta and sauce, Salad, Bread, and Dessert

  • Contact the office at 781-344-6800, office@firstparishstoughton.org BY APRIL 22 to make a reservation (be sure to indicate how many tickets, whether adult or kid tickets, and whether meat eater or vegetarian)

  • Raffle tickets are $1 each, 3 for $2, or 6 for $5 and are sold prior to as well as on the night of the BOLA dinner

The Mother’s Day Walk for Peace (MDW4P) is a beloved Boston tradition honoring the lives of our loved ones who have been murdered. It is the Louis D. Brown Peace Institute’s (LDBPI) largest fundraising event to grow and sustain our services, advocacy and training.

This year’s theme is ‘Cultivating Cycles of Peace.’ In our society, we are constantly looped into cycles of violence that overshadow the transformative power of peace. We have the agency to cultivate these cycles by empowering survivors, supporting returning citizens and their families and investing in Generation Peace, the young people shaping the world.

We invite you to walk with us this Mother’s Day, Sunday, May 12, 2024, as we Cultivate Cycles of Peace in our communities. With your help, we can reach our goal of $600,000 together!”

“10:00 AM Family Worship: Lessons from the Great Story Part I: Where does Creativity Come from? 

Last month we introduced the Great Story of the Universe through the lens of a creation story. Creation stories can offer us a sense of identity and provide us with life lessons.  So what can we glean from it? This week is part I of Lessons from the Great Story

10:30 AM Worship: Creating Fairness in the Land of Plenty

Article II Sermon Series: Equity

Today we continue our sermon series on our UU values as described in our newly proposed Article II of our UUA Bylaws, by exploring the value of Equity. The bylaw revision declares: ‘every person has the right to flourish with inherent dignity and worthiness.’ What does equity have to do with inherent worth and dignity? Rev. Jolie preaching.”
