The spiritual art of mindfulness

This Sunday, April 11, the Reverend Frieda Gillespie will speak on “Mismatched Socks and Mindfulness.” Frieda explains:

Mindfulness is the term used most commonly these days to describe being fully present with a “beginner’s mind.” Plenty of evidence demonstrates a lack of mindfulness in our lives. On the other hand, some rather brilliant people are considered “absent-minded.” What does that really mean? And how do we cultivate the spiritual art of mindfulness?

Trumpet soloist Chris O’Hara will join us as our musical guest. Chris holds a bachelor of music degree from the Boston Conservatory and a master of music from Boston University. He has performed at more than 2,000 events covering 47 states and 10 countries, and has played with the Mormon Tabernacle Choir, the Boston Pops, and Natalie Cole. He is currently the brass department chairman at the South Shore Conservatory in Hingham.

Our service will begin at 10:30 a.m., followed by coffee and fellowship at about 11:30. Child care and religious-education classes are available, and visitors are always welcome.
