Adult Education - The Gifts of Imperfection
Our fifth Adult Education session will start Wednesday March 15th from 7-8pm. Many thanks to our intern Sandi Albom who will lead our discussion of the New York Times bestseller, The Gifts of Imperfection, by Dr. Brene Brown.
It's not easy being human! But, have you ever considered how our inherent imperfections are really a gift? Dr. Brene Brown, a researcher and thought leader on the subjects of shame and resilience has! She poses a question that may be familiar in some way to all of us: "How do we cultivate the courage, compassion, and connection that we need to embrace our imperfections and to recognize that we are enough - that we are worthy of love, belonging and joy?"
Take time this Lent to explore and engage in the concept of Wholeheartness. Join us as we discuss Brown's Ten Guideposts toward living a Wholehearted Life and consider how those might fit with our own understanding of how we are called to live as followers of Jesus.
We will meet four Wednesday evenings from 7:00-8:00, March 15th-April 5th in the Old Parish House Parlor. You are welcome to attend one or all four evenings and please bring a friend.

Lenten Quiet Day- April 1st
Are you feeling overcome by the noise of the world? Having trouble setting down your electronic devices? Are you wishing for a bit of quiet in your busy life? Join us for a morning of settling into a relaxed rhythm with the Holy One. It will be a time for prayer and reflection, for worship and for creating space in our hearts, minds and spirits. We will begin by joining in a light breakfast and reflection. We will have moments for shared creativity and for solitary prayer. There will also be a portable labyrinth available for our use that day. Our time together will end with a simple lunch. Please sign up on the sheets at the back of the church or in Reynolds Hall so we know how many to plan for. Also please save any magazines that were destined for the recycling bin and bring them with you that day. You may also drop them off in the designated box in the office. Please contact Sandi Albom
(603)303-2435 or the office (603)924-3202 for additional information.
Thursday March 23rd- The Hancock Public Library Robert Azzi will present his "Ask a Muslim Anything" open forum at 7pm. All are welcome!
