“Discipline Matters” will examine behaviors that challenge parents, as a function of the interaction between a child’s nature and the demands of an environment.

The First Parish Church of Bolton invites the public to join in a discussion about race at its program “Sacred Conversation on Race: The Death of Eric Garner,”  to be held Wednesday, Oct. 26, at 7 p.m. in Davis Hall, on Main Street. The program will be facilitated by Rev. Dr. Beatrice Manning, associate minister of the church, and spiritual storyteller Rev. Cindy Maybeck, both trained facilitators in conversations on race.

Through the narrative of a recent event, Manning and Maybeck seek to engage the conversation of race in our society, humanizing the often dehumanized story that is stripped by media of its very real content and relationship to our lives, thinking about the circumstances and realities of race today, and opening the door to action.

Anyone interested in attending is asked to contact Bea Manning by email at or by phone 978-897-8663, so facilitators can have an approximate head count.
