 Nauset Interfaith Association:  I HAVE A DREAM:  Most Americans are familiar with Martin Luther King’s “ I Have A Dream,” speech but few have read or studied what many scholars consider his most important writing, the 7000 word “ Letter From Birmingham Jail.” During 2018, the 50th anniversary of the assassination of Dr. King, the Nauset Interfaith Association is sponsoring a 4 or 5 session study of this historic letter. Holy Spirit will be participating in this study and observance at our parish’s Wednesday early evening adult education program in the Parish Hall at 5:30 pm beginning on July 11. Please consider registering to participate. Study leaders will be Ken Campbell+ and Bill Heuss+. To register call or email Ken at 413-478-5719 or ksbcampbell@verizon.net.
