Our regular Sunday Gathering. An opportunity for wisdom, joy, solace, and community – followed by a healthy dose of caffeine, cake, and conversation.
Gatherings include live music, a story for children, singing, poetry and literature, a talk from our minister, and time for sharing joys and sorrows.
Richard Price was minister at the Newington Green Meeting House for much of the 18th Century. This extraordinary man excelled in philosophy, science, preaching, economics, and mathematics. He was also a tremendous radical of his time, daring to challenge institutions such as hereditary power, colonial rule, and slavery. His support of the American revolution and other controversial causes brought vitriolic opposition against him from powerful figures and beyond. And yet, Richard Price persisted.
This Sunday, we explore the person and the power of Richard Price and ask what his way of being would look like in today's world.
