Honoring Earth Day

WARWICK — The Rev. Dan Dibble of the Trinitarian Congregational Church of Warwick writes, “Each year, around Earth Day, we conduct a townwide roadside clean up. We can’t gather as a group so this year we are making colored bags available for people to pick up trash individually or as a family/household to be dropped off at the chapel on Saturday, April 25. We are also asking people to make signs, in honor of the 50th anniversary of Earth Day, expressing “Creation Care/Concern.” We will take pictures of the bags and the signs to post online and to send to you, if you want them.”

Sunday: ‘The Great Teacher’

NORTHFIELD — First Parish Unitarian says, “We think of Jesus and the Buddha as the great teachers. What if we think of the global health crisis as the great teacher of our age? Join our service by videoconference at 9 a.m. Sunday, April 26, for thoughts on this question from lay leader Louise Cochran of Marlboro, Vt. Youth in the congregation will transfer into a separate religious education session during the service. After the service, congregants will join in a virtual coffee hour. Members of the congregation may use the same meeting number, link, as on previous Sundays. Anyone needing the connection information may request it by email to fpnorthfieldma@gmail.com.”

Northfield church offers TCC Takeout

We offer “TCC Takeout” — liturgies for use at home. Copies are emailed or snail mailed to our members and are also available late each week at our website: http://www.tccnorthfield.org/home.html.

Occasional gatherings via Zoom are planned.
