The poet Wendell Berry writes, “When despair for the world grows in me and I wake in the night at the least sound in fear of what my life and my children’s lives may be, I go and lie down where the wood drake rests in his beauty on the water, and the great heron feeds. I come into the peace of wild things who do not tax their lives with forethought of grief.” This Sunday, five UU congregations across the North Shore have put together a pre-recorded service to explore what Berry means in this poem. Rev. Jenna explores what silence and peace can do to enrich our interior lives, and Rev. Janet Parsons (Gloucester) explores how that silence and peace can then inform and enrich our action in the world. Come, settle into the peace of worship and of wild things, and join us. If you join in person, we’ll be having a Thanksgiving leftovers potluck lunch directly following the service - so save those leftovers!
We hope you’ll stick around after the service this Sunday for a Thanksgiving (Day of Mourning) leftovers potluck lunch! Bring any leftovers you have from Thanksgiving for a potluck meal to share after church.
