February 2020 at the Dublin Unitarian Church
“Begin again to the summoning birds
to the sight of the light at the window,
begin to the roar of morning traffic
all along Pembroke Road.
Every beginning is a promise
born in light and dying in dark
determination and exaltation of springtime
flowering the way to work.”
from Begin by Brendan Kennelly

Church Clubs & Groups Meeting in February 2020
Film Club meets on the first Wednesday of the month at the Lantern Centre on Synge Street. Rendezvous at 7pm for a 7.15 start This month, on 5th February, they will watch The Trouble With Harry, a funny, early Alfred Hitchcock movie – funny and Hitchcock don’t often go together. Harry may be dead (from natural causes) but he seems nevertheless, to shun his rightful place in the welcoming soil of New England. We can guarantee no violence among the living nor even ‘gru’ as in gruesomeness but the film is ‘A delightful romp!’ so do please come. The film club is a great social opportunity to meet other members of the church as well as to watch great movies. Admission is free but film club members like to leave a donation for the Lantern Centre.
Whether it be heating, stonework, windows or the grand restoration project of the pipe organ, old churches never stop needing funds to continue their maintenance and renewal. You can see the beautiful results of the recent restoration work of the Hutton Window on our Facebook page. There is more work to be done to bring new light through our old but historic windows. You can contribute to the ongoing restoration work by donating via Paypal or by buying church publications and greeting cards at church or online. See the Restoration page on the website for more details.
The church has published a variety of books and other products. Our most recent publication is a first collection of sermons and essays by our current minister Rev. Bridget Spain.
The new book, as well as other books of sermons and childrens stories and greetings cards published by the church are available from the website and we take payment through Paypal.
