Soil, Fungi, and Other Cancel Cultures
Sunday, May 7th at 10am
Rev. Nate Klug preaching.
Our consideration of Sacred Nature this week brings us eye to eye with the earth, as we dig into the regenerative work of soil and fungi. We’ll take the opportunity to draw an analogy from the natural world to what some are calling “cancel culture” in our human realm. “Originating as a way for marginalized and disempowered people to address harm and take down powerful abusers, often with the help of social media, [cancel culture] is seen by some as having gone too far” (adrienne maree brown). How does addressing – and filtering out – damage contribute to growth, in horticulture and human culture alike? And how can regeneration rise out of ruin? Our congregational singing will include Pete Seeger’s “Inch by Inch, Row by Row,” and the choir will offer Philip Stopford’s rendition of “For the Beauty of the Earth.” We’ll bless our Stewardship pledges, as we celebrate the special stone soup that is First Parish. Don’t forget to join us for a potluck in the Parish House after worship!
