New Form for Prayers of Joy and Sorrow
Use this form to submit your contribution to be lifted up in Sunday’s online worship service. These offerings from our hearts and lives are how we share the prayers of the people of Follen Church. Plan ahead, please submit these by 8am Sunday morning.
We have a new form for submitting Sunday morning announcements for the welcomers to read. Please note that they need to be relevant to all Follen members and friends, and they need to be under one minute in length.
More info is on the form!
Sunday Morning Pulpit Announcements
On Sunday, March 19, 7-8:30 pm, by Zoom, we’ll discuss What Comes Naturally: Miscegenation Law and the Making of Race in America by Peggy Pascoe. Pascoe traces the origins, spread, and demise of miscegenation laws in the United States–laws that banned interracial marriage and sex, most often between whites and members of other races.
Reviewers call this book “accessible” and “satisfying.” “I’m a huge fan of this book because it shows how deliberately the system of white supremacy was built.” Lydia Swan finds it “compelling”! More at this Minuteman Library Network link.
The Making of Asian America by Erika Lee
“These powerful Asian American stories…are inspiring, and Lee does them justice in a book that is long overdue.” “Accessibly written for a wide readership.” “The Making of Asian America is an ‘epic and eye-opening’ new way of understanding America itself.” More at this Minuteman Network Library link.

The Follen Stitches, Follen’s knitting group, meets every Wednesday morning from 10am til noon. The first Wednesday of the month is via Zoom, and the remaining weeks are in person in the Anne Smith Room. Many knit, some do other needlework, but no handiwork is required to join and chat. We have a stash of yarn and some needles and can teach beginners.
