And a child shall lead them.
Under a bright Sunday sky, a barefoot, seven-year old Erin Clark led a group of clergy members down Mugford and Elm Streets, as she carried the Marblehead Covenant to its home for the next year.
“The Covenant is given to each house of worship on a rotating basis,” explained Christine Holbrook of the First Church of Christ, Scientist, which will host the Covenant for the next 12 months. “It’s a reminder that we all need to respect and honor one another’s point of view.”
Clark, along with Rev. Wendy von Courter, delivered the Covenant from the Unitarian Universalist Church, where it spent the last year.
