Scholar Diana Butler Bass to Explore “Spiritual Revolution”, May 6-7

April 5, 2017

The spiritual revolution, finding God in the world, is an invitation to new birth, most especially for religion. …It is time for the church to wake up. There is nothing worse than sleeping through a revolution. – Diana Butler Bass, Grounded


Diana Butler Bass, nationally known author, speaker, and scholar of religion and culture, joins First Parish Church’s continuing anniversary celebration of “300 Years on The Way” on May 6th and 7th for a weekend learning event. In keeping with the congregation’s hope to celebrate the past 300 years while looking to the future of faith and community, Dr. Bass brings rich insight to the trends and phenomena of our wider culture and our practices and expressions of faith. Throughout the weekend, she will share her work on changing perspectives of God and how those changes are transforming individuals and faith communities, building on her most recent book, Grounded: Finding God in the World, A Spiritual Revolution. 

The weekend begins on Saturday afternoon with workshops and presentations from colleagues and friends in the Maine Conference, United Church of Christ from 12:30-5pm across the church campus. After a break for dinner, Dr. Bass will offer the evening’s presentation in the sanctuary at 7pm.

Dr. Bass will also be the guest preacher at the 10am worship service and provide an afternoon presentation from 12:30-2 on Sunday, May 7th 

More information on Diana Butler Bass is available at her website.
