About the Sermon: Have you ever watched the show, America’s Got Talent? It’s the show where people come on before a panel of judges and perform. The judges move them to the next round or not. I’ve never really liked those kinds of shows. Every person has talents, and there isn’t a winner. In this service we will look at building community with our talents through the world of Disney’s Encanto! Hold on to your seats!


Mary-Beth Landy is a mother of 3 daughters, who were the draw or should I say drag, to bring her to First Parish! Upon entering the doors, she knew she had found her spiritual home! During her 24 years as a member, she has served on various committees and as a Worship Associate for 7 years, and she now serves on the Welcoming Congregation Committee. In her spare time, Mary-Beth is a Trauma and Mental Health Specialist, a wife and the wrangler of 3 dogs and 3 cats!
