Sunday July 23, 10am in the Chapel: The Wilderness of Motherhood – a story of hope and healing
Service leader: Lora Williams
Lora Freeman Williams has written a book entitled The Wilderness of Motherhood in which she explores in a series of essays her journey of becoming a single parent and reflecting on her childhood experiences with her own single parent, schizophrenic mother. Her somatic studies and work have deep roots in her personal history and her personal inquiry into what brings well-being and lasting change after trauma.
Lora is most recently from Boulder, Colorado and lives in Andover with her husband, John and son, Isaac. She works as a yoga instructor, meditation instructor and writer. She spent 13 years as a massage therapist, with a focus on clinical work with chronically, acutely ill and traumatized clients.
Lemonade Hour in the garden, weather permitting.
Sunday July 30 – On Friendship
Leading: Carol Disney
Music: by James McDaniel
Friendship is born at that moment when one person says to another: ‘What! You too! I thought I was the only one.’ – C.S. Lewis. Friends and friendship have been a core part of Carol’s identity and a source of solace and joy for many, many years. Let’s bring it on! Come join her as she explores friendship through literature, music and personal stories. Unfortunately her son James McDaniel, is refusing to sing “You’re My Best Friend” by Queen.
Carol has been a member of North Parish since 1999. She is a school psychologist working with elementary aged children. She is married to Don McDaniel and has three children, Grace, Sam and James McDaniel, all of whom have attended the RE programs at church since they were five years old.
Please note that no childcare is provided during Summer Services; however, children and youth are welcome to sit with their parents to listen to the service.
