Reading & Reflections on the Meeting House

April 3, 2022

Tapping into our own considerable talent, Meeting House members read from historic sermons, prose and poetry, recite from the church’s history, and share imaginings of the church’s future. Too many to ignore are the significant ideas, memorable expressions and carefully crafted words that were written and spoken by our predecessors. Time to hear them.
