Sunday Worship Service

February 26


Rev. Leaf Seligman 
Guest Preaching 

"What Grounds Us. A Meditation/Rumination on What Might be of Use in Troubling Times."

Leaf Seligman joyfully affirms her vocation of teaching (forgiveness, reconciliation & restorative justice) with a dash of itinerant preaching and a dollop of nonprofit work with Monadnock Restorative Community (envisioning a community restored to wholeness where every member can flourish). Leaf loves preaching at First Parish where the music inspires, the commitment of the congregation emboldens and the warm welcome delights her every time.

First Parish Arlington Stands with Muslims, Refugees, Immigrants

Unitarian Universalists affirm the inherent worth and dignity of every person. We therefore stand against any effort to exclude, stigmatize, or ban any group of people.

Hundreds of people recently came to a candlelight vigil on our lawn to protest the executive order banning refugees and travelers from seven Muslim-majority countries.  Read more at Wicked Local Arlington.

We're organizing a series of Potlucks at First Parish to give people an opportunity to get to know each other in a relaxed setting. Everyone is welcome. Please bring a dish to share (anything is fine -- it's truly "pot luck"). Our next potluck is March 26 (please note that the previously announced January 29 date has been cancelled). All potlucks will be held from 11:45 am to 1:00 pm in the Parlor after Sunday Service. Drop-ins welcome! If you have any questions, please contact Sarah Trilling and Julius Pereli at potlucks @
