The Cambridge churches have been ahead of the City government for some time now. I caught the 350 bell ringing last year. Now:

But this, which Reverand Peter refers to as “10 feet above contradiction”, brings to mind time honored phrases like “papist idolatry.” Well at least they had the Onetarian guy from First Parish with his guitar.

Despite the recent schism between the Firsts, they got along amicably. This abrupt climate change thing must be big.
