July 12: "Ally is a Verb: Learning to Effectively Stand Up to Racism" The Black Lives Matter uprising is a moment of reckoning: a call to action for our country, our communities, our faith traditions and ourselves. More is being asked of us, yet how do we "Live our faith out loud," as UUA President Susan Frederick-Gray calls us to do? Join Rev. Lisa and voices of First Parish as we explore this call together.

July 19: "Choose Your Own Adventure" We will explore issues facing each of us today and the ways that choosing love and justice impact the world. Life is an adventure that we should not meet with trepidation nor ignore, but face head on to move toward a better world. Alisa Halliday leading worship.

July 26: “Enter, Rejoice and Come In” A joyful presentation by the First Parish Vision Team of their 7-day trip to Antigua, Guatemala last February to participate in the work of Common Hope, a service organization working to help children and their families rise out of poverty through education. Anne Copeland, Susan Larabee, Steve Davis and others will present their personal stories about the trip. Together, we will reflect on receiving when we expect to give.

August 2: “Stitching Legacies” Worship Leader: Laci Adams

August 9: "Answering the Call" Matt Pargeter-Villareal - with inspiration from the words of Parker Palmer - discusses the importance of vocation and the discovery of being true to one's self and one's heart, based on stories from both Palmer and Matt's own life. Rev. Lisa will serve as a Worship Leader along with Matt.
