This Sunday at 11, we have a very special Whole Church Service with Storyteller Sharon Kennedy, presenting “An American in Ghana”.
Sharon will tell Ghanaian folktales (and sing a song) she collected from a trip to Ghana; you will feel like you are traveling with her as she shows pictures and talks about the storytellers she met in rural Ghana. Her stories conclude with Sharon teaching us some very simple West African dance moves. If you want to add to the dance music, there will also be a dozen easy-to-use instruments, such as shakers and rainsticks or you are welcome to bring your own.
Morning Song will be before 11 and coffee and refreshments after the service.
We hope you join us; it’s not the same without you.

Join us this Sunday as Rev. Marta leads us in worship.
Our service will give a nod to The Feast of the Epiphany, affectionately known as Three Kings Day, but we will also consider something to carry you through the year. To find out what that might be, you'll have to come at 11 on Sunday...

I would love to come but i tweaked my back
Welcome to 2019, and our new monthly theme of Possibility!
We have some great worship services planned around this theme for January, including on Sunday, January 13 when we invite the storyteller Sharon Kennedy to tell us about what she learned on a recent trip to Ghana.
In Sharon's own words:
"In 2012 I went on an extraordinary (and somewhat difficult) trip to Ghana and Burkina Faso. A friend and I traversed Ghana from the south to the north, and then into Burkina Faso, with a wonderful Ghanaian Muslim guide in a van which we all thought was air conditioned–but wasn’t. It was very hot, the roads were bad, and the food was too spicy for me; but the people were the friendliest I’ve ever met outside of Ireland, and everyone went out of their way to find me storytellers so I could collect stories.
On Sunday, January 13, at 11:00 am the Unitarian Church of Medford at 147 High St. I will present my hour long show about this experience. Yes, I will tell Ghanaian folktales (and sing a song) I collected, but you will also travel with me as I show and talk about a dozen photos of rural Ghana and the storytellers.The program will conclude with West African music (on a boom box) and I will teach you a half dozen very simple West African dance moves.There will also be a dozen easy-to-use instruments, such as shakers and rainsticks, if you want to be a musician instead of a dancer.
School age children can definitely attend. West African stories are for all ages and so is the dancing.
I hope to see you there!" ... See MoreSee Less

Join us this Sunday as we continue to explore December's theme of Mystery. We will talk about things that we put our faith into, even though they are not (and perhaps can't be) proven.
