“A Religion for One World”

Rev. Amy Freedman

Our January worship theme is our Interfaith Roots. Rev. Amy Freedman will explore how the bold experiment of the Charles Street Meeting House in Boston changed our religious movement. How does universal religion live on today? How can the vision of one humanity and one planet challenge and inspire us as we enter a new year?

Find comfort in the beauty of candles, music, and understanding. Rev. Liz Weber and Beth Norton will offer a quiet space to share words of reflection and music of solace. All are welcome.
