    In the aftermath of his father’s untimely death and his family’s indecision over what to do with the remains, Thomas Mira y Lopez became obsessed with the type and variety of places where we lay the dead to rest. The result is a singular collection of essays that weaves together history, mythology, journalism, and personal narrative into the author’s search for a place to process grief.

    130 Main St, Montpelier, VT 05602, USA

    In order to accommodate this growth in worship attendance, the Unitarian Church of Montpelier (UCM) will experiment with having two services during the month of January rather than its single 10:00 am service. Services will take place at 9:00am and 11:00am on all four Sundays that month.

    The church has noted that average Sunday attendance has been increasing since the arrival of their new minister, the Rev. Joan Javier-Duval, in August of 2015. The church experienced a record attendance of 309 individuals the Sunday after the 2016 election (in a sanctuary that holds 230) and has continued to have a full sanctuary most Sundays.

    “We want to be able to welcome all who are seeking community and spiritual nourishment on Sunday mornings,” says the Rev. Joan Javier-Duval, Minister of UCM. “During this time of great societal upheaval and challenge, no one should feel that there is no room for them.”

    UCM’s worship service currently offers opportunities for congregational participation in hymns and readings, a sermon on the theme of the month, and music that compliments the topic at hand. These elements will be maintained for both services. Religious education programming for children will also be offered during both services.

    Additional information about the two service exploration at the Unitarian Church of Montpelier is available by calling 223-7861 or by checking the church website for up-to-date information: https://ucmvt.org/worship/two-services-exploration/.

    About the Unitarian Church of Montpelier: UCM has been a religious home for open-minded Vermonters since 1864. We are an inclusive congregation welcoming all people of all ages, classes, ethnicities, genders, physical abilities and sexual orientations–into our community.

    In order to accommodate this growth in worship attendance, the Unitarian Church of Montpelier (UCM) will experiment with having two services during the month of January rather than its single 10:00 am service. Services will take place at 9:00am and 11:00am on all four Sundays that month.

    The church has noted that average Sunday attendance has been increasing since the arrival of their new minister, the Rev. Joan Javier-Duval, in August of 2015. The church experienced a record attendance of 309 individuals the Sunday after the 2016 election (in a sanctuary that holds 230) and has continued to have a full sanctuary most Sundays.

    “We want to be able to welcome all who are seeking community and spiritual nourishment on Sunday mornings,” says the Rev. Joan Javier-Duval, Minister of UCM. “During this time of great societal upheaval and challenge, no one should feel that there is no room for them.”

    UCM’s worship service currently offers opportunities for congregational participation in hymns and readings, a sermon on the theme of the month, and music that compliments the topic at hand. These elements will be maintained for both services. Religious education programming for children will also be offered during both services.

    Additional information about the two service exploration at the Unitarian Church of Montpelier is available by calling 223-7861 or by checking the church website for up-to-date information: https://ucmvt.org/worship/two-services-exploration/.

    About the Unitarian Church of Montpelier: UCM has been a religious home for open-minded Vermonters since 1864. We are an inclusive congregation welcoming all people of all ages, classes, ethnicities, genders, physical abilities and sexual orientations–into our community.

    130 Main St, Montpelier, VT 05602, USA

    In order to accommodate this growth in worship attendance, the Unitarian Church of Montpelier (UCM) will experiment with having two services during the month of January rather than its single 10:00 am service. Services will take place at 9:00am and 11:00am on all four Sundays that month.

    The church has noted that average Sunday attendance has been increasing since the arrival of their new minister, the Rev. Joan Javier-Duval, in August of 2015. The church experienced a record attendance of 309 individuals the Sunday after the 2016 election (in a sanctuary that holds 230) and has continued to have a full sanctuary most Sundays.

    “We want to be able to welcome all who are seeking community and spiritual nourishment on Sunday mornings,” says the Rev. Joan Javier-Duval, Minister of UCM. “During this time of great societal upheaval and challenge, no one should feel that there is no room for them.”

    UCM’s worship service currently offers opportunities for congregational participation in hymns and readings, a sermon on the theme of the month, and music that compliments the topic at hand. These elements will be maintained for both services. Religious education programming for children will also be offered during both services.

    Additional information about the two service exploration at the Unitarian Church of Montpelier is available by calling 223-7861 or by checking the church website for up-to-date information: https://ucmvt.org/worship/two-services-exploration/.

    About the Unitarian Church of Montpelier: UCM has been a religious home for open-minded Vermonters since 1864. We are an inclusive congregation welcoming all people of all ages, classes, ethnicities, genders, physical abilities and sexual orientations–into our community.

    On Sunday, January 21st at 2pm all are invited to the Jewish Community of Greater Stowe (JCOGS) to enjoy a presentation by Mark Greenberg as he explores the always-rambling Woody Guthrie’s life and legacy through readings from his prolific prose writings, recorded and live examples of his music, and slides of Guthrie’s own art and of photographs documenting his complex life and times.

    In his music and writing, Woody Guthrie chronicled the devastation of the 1930s dust storms and the Great Depression, championing the dispossessed and economic and social justice. Many of his songs (“This Land is Your Land”) have become American classics, and he has influenced subsequent songwriters, including Bob Dylan and Bruce Springsteen.

    Vermont Humanities presenter, Mark Greenberg, is an educator, writer, musician, and media producer who has taught at Goddard College and the University of Vermont. He wrote for the JVC-Smithsonian Folkways Video Anthologies of Music and Dance of the Americas, Europe, and Africa and has recorded music by recent immigrants and refugees in the state for the Vermont Folklife Center’s New Neighbors project.

     This afternoon event is free, handicap accessible and all are welcome. Refreshments will be served after the program. JCOGS is located at 1189 Cape Cod Roadin Stowe. For more information please contact the JCOGS office at 802-253-1800.

    130 Main St, Montpelier, VT 05602, USA

    In order to accommodate this growth in worship attendance, the Unitarian Church of Montpelier (UCM) will experiment with having two services during the month of January rather than its single 10:00 am service. Services will take place at 9:00am and 11:00am on all four Sundays that month.

    The church has noted that average Sunday attendance has been increasing since the arrival of their new minister, the Rev. Joan Javier-Duval, in August of 2015. The church experienced a record attendance of 309 individuals the Sunday after the 2016 election (in a sanctuary that holds 230) and has continued to have a full sanctuary most Sundays.

    “We want to be able to welcome all who are seeking community and spiritual nourishment on Sunday mornings,” says the Rev. Joan Javier-Duval, Minister of UCM. “During this time of great societal upheaval and challenge, no one should feel that there is no room for them.”

    UCM’s worship service currently offers opportunities for congregational participation in hymns and readings, a sermon on the theme of the month, and music that compliments the topic at hand. These elements will be maintained for both services. Religious education programming for children will also be offered during both services.

    Additional information about the two service exploration at the Unitarian Church of Montpelier is available by calling 223-7861 or by checking the church website for up-to-date information: https://ucmvt.org/worship/two-services-exploration/.

    About the Unitarian Church of Montpelier: UCM has been a religious home for open-minded Vermonters since 1864. We are an inclusive congregation welcoming all people of all ages, classes, ethnicities, genders, physical abilities and sexual orientations–into our community.
