“Sauntering in September”,
coordinated by First Parish Church Congregational Manchester, the Rebecca Nurse
Homestead and the First Church of Danvers, looks at the serious issue of blaming,
bullying and scapegoating during the Witch Hysteria and today. Join us for an afternoon walk in Danvers as we saunter and contemplate, during the 320th Anniversary of the Witch Hysteria and the Trails and Sails Celebration, what did the
people of that time believe? Did anyone defend or try to rescue those accused?
Today what do we believe about blaming, bullying, and scapegoating?

Presentations begin at 1:00 pm on Sunday, Oct 14th, at the 1678 Rebecca Nurse
Homestead, continue to the First Church of Danvers ending at approximately 2:30
pm at the archeological site of the Rev. Samuel Parris Parsonage. Cost $5
donation (to benefit the 1678 Rebecca Nurse Homestead
in preserving this historic site and to the First Church of Danvers,
Congregational for their continued ecumenical work & gift of tolerance).

Presenters include; Pam Price, proprietor of The Book Shop of Beverly Farms, Tyler Duda, FPC Youth and student at Manchester Essex Regional High School, Kevin Murphy, FPC Deacon and Rev. Judy Proctor, Pastor of First Church of Danvers and member of SPARKS, a group of professional storytellers.
