Religious Education News 2/18

Hello Friends,

We are more than half-way through February! Hopefully there will be more sunny than cloudy and grey days ahead. Perhaps you can share some time with us on Sunday mornings for our worship services at 10:00 a.m. or your children can join us at 9:00 for our kid friendly programs. Please  check the First Parish web site for some fun baking events that folks of all ages can enjoy (King Cakes! Hot Cross Buns!)

Here’s what’s happening in upcoming weeks with our children:

Sunday, February 21: Black History Month Celebration: Love They Neighbor, led by Educator Wendy Fields, at 9:00 a.m. on Zoom. Together we will hear the story of “Freedom Summer” and talk about the ways two very different boys cared for each other and dealt with unfair and discriminatory practices.

 

Sunday, February 28: “Monkey Makes Mischief in Heaven” a Puppet Performance by local artist Margaret Moody.  To learn more click on this link: https://vimeo.com/506091193

The Chinese Monkey King delights in his new job in the Heavenly Peach Garden, snatching delicious, forbidden peaches. But when he finds out that he’s been left out of the Peach Blossom banquet honoring the Year of the Ox, Monkey flies off to make mischief in the Heavens.   Puppeteer Margaret Moody presents this lively episode of the Chinese epic “Journey to the West” with traditional Taiwanese hand puppets and choreography, which she studied with the I Wan Jan Traditional Hand Puppet Troupe in Taiwan.          More at margaretmoodypuppets.com
