First Parish Plymouth Unitarian Universalist Church

First Parish Church in Plymouth is the oldest continuous church in New England.

The congregation has a long tradition of religious freedom and faith that dates back to the pilgrim landing and beyond. We trace our origin back to the year 1606 when a group of dissenters from the Church of England banded together in Scrooby. In 1620 part of the Leyden congregation set sail aboard the Mayflower, seeking the freedom to worship according to the dictates of their own conscience in the New World. This history brings us a sense of pride and joy, but we also realize that the present and future need a fresh commitment to maintain a religion of the open mind and heart.

Freedom of belief is foundation to Unitarian Universalism. We affirm the worth of all human beings and the integrity of individual thought and action. As a liberal religious community, we share the quest for a practical religion based on deed, not creed.

I’m still getting used to the idea that Leonard Cohen is dead, and so suddenly when there was no chance for us to grieve and celebrate.  Now that the election is over and Christmas is past, it is time to reflect on this poet and troubadour.
