Seeing White podcast discussions
Tuesdays, 7 to 8:30 pm, Flex Room

Beginning June 25th, and continuing on Tuesday evenings for 10 weeks, the Racial Justice Team will be hosting discussions that follow along with the episodes of the Scene on Radio:  Seeing White podcast. Listen to the episode(s) in advance and join us for discussion in the Flex Room on Tuesdays from 7-8:30 pm.  Refreshments will be served and the discussions are open to North Parish members and other friends from the community. Please use the Garden Entrance.

Each episode is summarized in the attached schedule, and includes a link to the actual podcast.  You can listen on your computer, or download the podcasts to your phone.  Hope to see you for one or more of the discussions this summer.


Vegetarian Potluck, Monday, TBA

Sponsored by the Climate Justice Task Force. If you are new to vegetarian cooking or don’t have time to cook, there is always an abundance of food so please come anyway. We organize these potlucks in an effort to highlight the adverse effect the meat and cheese industry has on climate change and in the hopes that more and more of us will take the Meatless Monday pledge.

North Parish Knitting Circle
Tuesday, TBD, 7 – 9 pm, Blue Room

Knitters of all levels are welcome.  Drop in and knit a square or begin a prayer shawl.  Yarn, needles and treats will be available.  Hosted by Prayer Shawl Coordinator Phila Slade and the Caring Team.

Bread & Roses Food Prep
Fourth Saturday of the month, NP Kitchen

Bread & Roses is a soup kitchen in Lawrence that serves daily meals to those in need. For many years, North Parish has prepared a dinner meal for them to be served on 4th Saturday of each month. We pick up the ingredients and prepare a meal of Shepherd’s Pie in the Parish Hall kitchen that we deliver to them that afternoon. The commitment is only for a couple of hours on a Saturday (from 1-3pm) and is a very worthwhile service project that is becoming more important in these tough economic times. I am continuing to create a list of people who would want to participate in the future. Please contact Carolyn Murphy at csmerac@aol.com.  You will be assisting people who need a helping hand and feel better for doing it!
