Summer 2023 Online Service: September 3

September 3, 2023 @ 10:00 am - 12:00 pm

On the Nature of Things: Atoms, the Void, and Nothing More

David Dreyfus, Worship Leader

How do we think of gods, life, death, existence, purpose? 2100 years ago Lucretius, a Roman poet, wrote an epic poem that built on the earlier teachings of Epicurus, which was rediscovered in the 15th-century. There is, perhaps, much we can contemplate on our own spiritual journeys based on this sensuous, earlier account.

David Dreyfus has been attending First Parish for about 10 years and participates in many aspects of community life here. He has chaired the finance committee, participates on property, helps in the kitchen, facilitates a men’s group, engages in discussion groups, and actively participates in Lectio Divina as part of a very active spiritual journey.

For the month of September, the Giving First recipient is UU Mass Action.
Half the collection will go to that group;
The remaining half supports the life and work of this Parish.
