April 3  - The Baby and the Bath Water

For whatever reason people stop going to church - having been hurt, lacking time, seeking new answers to questions of life - they frequently come to a time in their lives when they wish they had a strong spiritual tradition and community. This sermon will look at what belonging to a church can mean and how, even with its imperfections, institutional religion has a great deal to offer.


April 10 - View from the Pew

Rev. Kelsch will lead part of the service and then go up to the Sunday School. Susan Weisenbeck is coordinating members of the congregation to offer their insights on "The Generosity of Second Parish" for the sermon time.


April 17 - Echoes of Silence

We are often uneasy in silence, and yet silence has long been an integral part of worship, meditation, and reflection. What can silence offer? How can we embrace its power?


April 24 - What If?

Allan Viden, Chair of the Leadership Board, will offer his thoughts about what the congregation contributes to the work and worship of Second Parish.
