Sunday, January 31:
On this Sunday, 33 years ago, Rev. Sterrett preached a "trial sermon" at Amicable. At the end of the worship service Bill and Barbara left the sanctuary and waited in the upper hall while the congregation voted on whether or not to covenant with him as a "settled pastor of Amicable Church". The vote was affirmative and the rest is history. Bill will reflect on that day and the years which have followed.
Special Summer Worship Series: (2019)
Connecting to the Spiritual in Everyday Life
Exploring Practices that keep us connected to the Divine and one another, members and friends of Amicable Church shared their experiences each Sunday.
Amicable's Lenten series "Meeting the Other" examined the 5 Moral Pillars explained in Jonathan Haidt's "The Righteous Mind". Each Sunday, personal experiences were shared on Loyalty/Betrayal, Sanctity/Purity/Degradation, Fairness/Cheating, Care/Harm, and Respect/Authority. In addition, a discussion series was held in partnership with the Tiverton Library inviting people from the community to listen and share their thoughts in an effort to heal the divide in our country.
Amicable held a special service of Remembrance and Thanksgiving on for All Saints Day. All who attended were invited to share a photo and light a candle for individuals close to their heart who have passed on.
