At Northshore Unitarian Universalist Church we offer a learning environment in which each child is valued. Our congregation is a place for fun, learning and affirmation — a place where your values are supported by a loving, open-minded spiritual community.

Please join us this Sunday, February 9, at 10:30 a.m. to learn about our Religious Exploration Program, attend our service, and meet our community. Following the service we invite you to learn about our programs and let us answer your questions while children are involved in a youth-led activity. Light lunch will be provided.

For more information, please contact the director of our RE Program, Meryl Baier, at merylbaier at verizon dot net (change “at” and “dot” to make a normal-looking email address).

The service, led by the Reverend Frieda Gillespie, will be on landays, the folk poetry of Afghan and Pakistani Pashtun women. Through these beautiful anonymous couplets, women and girls subvert all notions of subservience and weakness in relation to the men who oppress them.

The collection will be donated to Citizens for Adequate Housing. Founded in 1983, Citizens for Adequate Housing serves families from the North Shore, Eastern Massachusetts, and the Merrimack Valley.

The service will be followed by coffee and fellowship at about 11:30. Visitors are always welcome.
