Adult Religious Education — 9:30 AM\ Iris Craig, “Beyond Resilience”\ (First Parish Church of Stow and Acton, MA, November 2020)\ Good news: Research shows that everybody has resilience. We’re born with it.\ You are not “a resilient person” – or not -- through some quirk of fate.

Have you helped teach or role model that for anyone else? \ • Have you ever found or helped to create an environment that made it safe to respond emotionally in tough times, or easier to be resilient and effectively respond to challenges? \ \ Main Service — 11:00 AM (IN-PERSON & ONLINE)\ Guest minister Rev.
