An event every month that begins at 6:00pm on day Third of the month, repeating indefinitely
If the answer to this question is yes, our language conversation groups at First Parish are for you! As part of our congregation’s commitment to multiculturalism, the Transformation Team sponsors Spanish and Mandarin Chinese groups as opportunities to build bridges, experience different power dynamics, and deepen our connections with one another.
• Practice multilingual welcome and conversation
• Get to know people in a more intimate setting – great for newcomers!
• Build relationships across traditional boundaries of age, gender, committee membership .
Language skills rusty? No problem! While we seek to minimize the amount of English spoken, all levels are welcome – you can even just come and listen if you like. If you’re not a fluent speaker, remember that the ability to express oneself eloquently and effortlessly is a privilege most of us take for granted. It is a spiritual practice to leave that comfort zone, to depend on others and take the risk of being misunderstood. If you are a fluent speaker, come to share your gifts and experience spirituality in a different way.
Spanish groups meet the 1st and 3rd Tuesday of each month from 6:00-7:30 p.m. in the Baldwin Room.
