First Parish in Lexington

A great way to connect with others at First Parish is through our small group ministry­ – Soul Matters. In groups of 10, we meet with a facilitator once a month to explore spirituality and personal growth using a monthly UU theme which Rev. Anne also speaks about in her sermons. Please contact her if you’re interested in joining a Soul Matters group.

The theme for November is: ATTENTION

“I think it pisses God off if you walk by the color purple in a field somewhere don’t notice it.”  –Alice Walker

“Poet Mary Oliver said, ‘Attention is the beginning of devotion.’ You cannot love something you do not (really) see.” –Ben Sternke

“When I take a deep breath and pull in the reins of my ‘hurry’ I begin to find the numinous everywhere.” Joyce Rupp 
Some question to ponder: Just what is attention? How is it related to gratitude, love, and
