“Imagination: Our Heads Are Not Just Farms to Grow Hair”
Homily by Rev. John Gibbons
With a special welcome to children, youth, and families.
“Reconciling Science, Faith, and Justice”
An Earth Day Service coordinated by the First Parish Environmental Justice Group
Our guest speaker will reflect on the role of scientists, faith leaders, and ordinary people working together for justice, which necessitates rethinking language and traditional boundaries and societal roles. Nathan Phillips, a Boston University environmental science professor, recently made headlines by going on a hunger strike to protest a natural gas compressor station in Weymouth. We will also hear reflections from a few of our Sr. Youth on their virtual United Nations Climate conference experience. There will be opportunity for Question & Answer with Nathan Phillips following the service on the same zoom link.
