The growing opioid problem has impacted our communities regardless of class, education, race or gender. In this morning’s sermon Rev. Hank Peirce will be using one of Jesus’ parables as an example of the power of forgiveness in the healing and recovery processes. The Rev. Hank Peirce comes from old Swamp Yankee stock, with roots in our Bay State churches that reach back centuries. He has served a number of Unitarian Universalist churches both as an interim and as a settled minister.
