News & Announcements

As we begin 2021 we wanted to share again each new member’s photo and bio so that if you see them pop up in the comments during online worship, or at a church program, (and eventually, dear GOD, when we meet in person) you’ll know them a bit better.
We live in perilous times. An insidious and lurking virus, a decimated economy, racism laid bare, schools in disarray, a shuddering climate - yet we are not without agency.
Senior Minister Rev. Nancy Taylor and Acting Associate Minister Rev. Shawn Fiedler discuss the surprises, challenges, and more that come along with ministering during the COVID-19 pandemic.
We know this election is so important. We are committed to getting at least 75% of our church members to vote , and to use our votes to care for God's creation and fight against the climate crisis.
Comprised of 628 pages with 400 entries by over 100 authors, Old South Church in Boston, 1669-2019: A Concise Theological, Historical, & Whimsical Encyclopedia is now available for purchase!
Sanctuary open hours, all-church anti-racism read, new Community Hour series, and more.
Due to the state of our nation, we are opening the Sanctuary for prayer on a limited basis, Tuesday (today), Wednesday, and Thursday, from 4:00 to 6:00 pm. Depending on how that goes, we may expand into next week.
We cannot allow destructive rage to distract us from the root of the rage: injustice, the terrors of being black in a racist society, a system that favors and privileges some of us while demeaning and murdering others of us. The fact is that people don't revolt just just because...they revolt when circumstances have grown revolting. The rage we are seeing across the country is borne of genuine desperation. The pandemic just added more fuel to a smoldering heap of desperation.
