From Reverend Rebecca Froom:

Friends on the journey,

I write with sorrow to share  the tragic news that Rev. David Johnson died on July 21st in a car accident. Rev. Dave and his wife Julie were on vacation in New  Hampshire. 

Rev.  Dave served as our Interim Minister from 2012-2014 and many of you will  remember him from that time. He was known by congregants and colleagues as a kind, good-humored, caring, and generous man. And he LOVED Christmas!  While I did not know him well, I appreciated our time together and am grateful for his ministry here at UFPC.

Rev.  Dave had a long and influential ministerial career. He was ordained in 1964 and served UU congregations in Indiana, Pennsylvania, Arizona, and  throughout Massachusetts. He was involved in the civil rights work in  the 1960's. Rev. Dave served as a professor at Andover Newton Theological School where he taught UU History. He was a beloved mentor  for generations of UU ministers. His two years at UFPC was his last  ministerial position before his retirement. In recent years Rev. Dave and his wife were living in Providence, RI. 

May  Rev. Dave's memory be a blessing.

for more information on the topic.

During the summer months we hold weekly Chalice Circles on Sunday mornings from 10:30-12:00 (in lieu of worship). Chalice Circles are a drop-in discussion group grounded in the tradition of small group ministry which emphasizes deep listening and deep sharing. This year, Chalice Circles will meet in the parish hall and will run from Sunday, June 23rd through Sunday, September 1st. Each Chalice Circle will have a presenter who introduces the topic and over the course of the summer we will discuss a variety of

topics. Each week there will also be a host for the Chalice Circle Team who will support the presenter.
