Democracy as a Spiritual Practice


Thursdays, March 31 and April 14, 7:30pm


Join us for a compelling two-part series on Democracy as a Spiritual Practice.

  • Our first program - Strengthening our Civic Muscles - explores authoritarian regimes through the lens of Timothy Snyder’s book On Tyranny with Rev. Patrick McLaughlin from the UU Church of Manchester NH. We encourage attendees to read this short book prior to the session.

  • The second session, After the Protests, explores the ways in which we can engage and rebuild our civic society to bring our democracy back into balance. This program is led by the Rev. Sharon Welch, professor and author of numerous books (including After the Protests), and First Parish’s Social Action Manager, Rev. Paul Langston-Daley.

This series is co-sponsored by Reclaim Our Democracy, First Parish in Concord, First Church in Belmont and the UU Church of Manchester NH.
