Worship Services

October 1 - The Guest Room

Some people advise sleeping in your guest room at least once a year to know what your guests are experiencing. Others advise never giving up your own bed. This Sunday we'll talk about the delights and the difficulties in welcoming others.


October 8 - What Was Under Wraps? Special Presentation on the Wissinger Organ

This lay-led service will feature John Belknap and Elaine Cadogan running the service, RE Coordinator Leigh Baltzer leading Time for All Ages, and our Music Director Mark Slawson explaining many things you might not know about our Wissinger Organ. A few years ago, Mark participated in a presentation about Second Parish and its pipe organ for Hingham's Senior Center and we're thrilled he is willing to revisit his talk this weekend when Stephanie will be away.


October 15 - How's Your Hope Health?

In anxious times, it seems all we can hear is the bad news. Still, we rise in the morning and make our way through the day. What is the nature of this thing called hope that keeps us going? How can we keep our hope healthy?


October 22 - From Our Universalist Past: Olympia Brown

Rejected by the Unitarian School at Meadville, PA, Brown persisted in pursuing formal theological studies and ultimately became the first woman to graduate from an approved theological school in the U.S. and then - upon ordination as a Universalist minister - "the first woman to achieve full ministerial standing recognized by a denomination." Her story as a minister and an activist for women's rights provides insight into the quality of patience.


October 29 - A Thin Line

As we approach the end of October - with All Hallows’ Eve and All Saints' Day - we approach a time that human beings have long seen a coming together of our earthly world and the spirit world. How do we view such a time? What is it that draws us to such a time? What scares us? How can we manage encountering our mortality?
