The Present of Presence

We’ll be blessing the Chanukah lights together — if you’d like to BYOM (bring your own menorah) and candles, let’s light up the room together!
We hope you’ll join us at 6 p.m. on Wednesday, December 17th at First Church Boston as we honor and celebrate the lights of Chanukah, sing carols of the season and reflect on
The Present of Presence
After decades of begrudgingly showing up at holiday functions, speaker Barbara Seidl realized that her false presence was at the heart of her false relationships. In true fairy tale fashion, a magic formula set her free to be joyfully, willingly, and authentically present with those she loves and for the causes that speak to her heart. She is eager to share what she is learning about “The Present of Presence.”
Worship will be held upstairs in the (elevator-accessible) chapel. Please email us at to request specific accommodations. If you have dietary restrictions you’d like us to know about as we prepare dinner, please add your name to our communal spreadsheet here:
