Are you a parent of a little one (or two) who is looking for a spiritual practice in the season of Lent? Consider joining us for Family Night on the six Tuesdays of Lent, beginning March 11. In a departure from our usual informal biweekly gathering, we are making the commitment to meet every week in Lent for a small group opportunity. We’ll meet for our regular multigenerational supper at 5:30 p.m., in Sage Hall. At 6:15, the grown-ups will head upstairs for a time of study, reflection, and silence, while the children will remain in our indoor play space under the supervision of four church teenagers and one adult. The program will end promptly at 7:15 to allow families to get home for bedtime routines. Many thanks to First Church havruta leaders Joanne Paul, Gaylen Morgan, and Poppy Coffin for leading this small group for parents of young children.
If your family plans to attend, be sure to RSVP to Sarah Higginbotham, 617-547-2724, ext. 42, or firstname.lastname@example.org, by noon on Tuesday, so that she can plan the pasta portion for supper. And please bring something to share at the food table (salad, bread, veggies, fruit, cookies, etc.). The regular Family Night schedule and structure will return after Easter, when we meet on April 29 and May 13 and 27.
