A beacon of hope and courage
on the corner of Beacon and Centre.

There is a time between kindness
It is a difficult time
A long time

We walk with a limp into the next kindness
We arrive with fire in our chest
Despair in our heart
But we arrive

In that long walk between kindness
Remember to seek
Remember to sing
And beauty will emerge
A shared table
A child's hand
A smile

Beauty ushers in the next kindness.

May we all be ushers of the next kindness.

- Sean

three highlights

10a Sat 11/3
Red Wagon Rolls

Roll the Red Wagon through the autmn autumns down to the Centre Street Food Pantry to drop off food collected by our kids last Sunday. As many as 90 families shop each time the pantry is open and more than 20 new families come each month. It is a significant (and fun) way we put our "compassion in action."

Afterward, we will all grab apple cider and donuts at Dunks. We hope to see you there! 


10a Sun 11/4 Communion in Sanctuary 

This Sunday we will gather in the sanctuary for communion with our treasured organist Nadya Mikhaylova.  We will continue to walk through the Mark's Gospel in these few remaining weeks before Advent.

Have you ever considered becoming a communion server? Serving communion is a simple but meaningful spiritual practice. If you would like to learn to serve communion, contact Sean sean[at]  We will hold a brief training soon.

6p Sun 11/4 Open & Affirming Open Mic

A special kind of open mic: an Open (and Affirming) Mic night.

A space for people across age range and ability to come and celebrate a gift they have or want to explore. Although there may be some of that, you don't need to be an "expert" or be on Broadway to come up to the mic. Sing a song, play an instrument, tell a story, perform an act, speak about your art. Anything you are passionate about.

We will affirm and celebrate all ages and abilities. 10 people. 4-5 minutes each.
