First Parish Weekly News

Weekly News for February 7, 2018 —

Announcement from Sunday School:
Before you finished eating your breakfast this morning, you’ve depended on more than half the world. For the last couple of weeks, youth have been exploring how being mindful of our choices is an important aspect of being a justice maker. We have been taking a closer look at how we are linked to people across the world by the choices we make and the things that we buy like bananas, chocolate, and soccer balls.  On February 14, many of us take time to show a little extra love to the special people in our lives. This year, we invite you to share the love with the farmers, workers and artisans behind one of your favorite gifts, chocolate and coffee! Next Sunday during coffee hour, we invite you to purchase fair trade chocolate and coffee, learn more about how fair trade works, and send a personal note of thanks to workers in Ghana, the Philippines, and Ecuador who provide us with the food we love!
