Easter Bunny Breakfast at NSUU

Upcoming Events:

May 19, 12:00-1:30pm

NSUU Sanctuary

Soul Work Forum/Common Read Discussion:

Our new Common Read is Justice on Earth: People of Faith Working at the Intersections of Race, Class, and the Environment, edited by Manish Mishra-Marzetti and Jennifer Nordstrom (Skinner House Books, 2018).

 

 

 

 

At a time when racial justice, environmental justice, and economic justice are seen as issues competing for time, attention, and resources, Justice on Earth explores the ways in which the three are intertwined. Those on the margins are invariably those most affected by climate disaster and environmental toxins.

A light lunch will be served before the discussion.

 

Friday, June 7. 7:00 PM

SoulSong Concert.  Friday evening, June 7, at 7 PM, SoulSong, 25 voices strong, will present a concert entitled Songs of Peace and Healing for Troubled Times.  The concert will be a mix of peaceful and hopeful songs sung by SoulSong, a sharing of SoulSong’s mission including songs sung at bedside, and a sing along, blending our voices together in community.  Admission is free and donations will be gratefully accepted for the work of SoulSong and NSUU.  Receipts will be split 50/50 between SoulSong and NSUU.

Great Neck marsh, Ipswich

Pepperweed Pull

Help protect the biodiversity of the Great Marsh by volunteering to pull Pepperweed!  Join us on for orientation (at First Church UCC in Ipswich) and a Pepperweed Pull on the dry marsh at Great Neck.

Adults working with children as young as 5 years old have helped pull pepperweed successfully. Wear sun screen, long pants and socks, old sneakers you don’t mind getting damp or water proof boots.  The Pepperweed Pull site is medium accessible and pulling isn’t difficult.

 

Sunday, June 9. 12:00 PM – 1:00 PM

Aging Well Forum. Sunday, June 9, 12 – 1:00 PM.  The topic will be Family Dynamics.  As Caregivers, we face many challenges.  We are often unprepared for the reactions of family members.  These “surprises” can add to the burden of providing care. Susan Hass LICSW is a social worker who retired from a career as a nursing home social worker and hospice social worker.  Susan will share a case study from her own family and offer strategies.
