Where’s Bridgewater?

“Where’s Bridgewater?” presentation given by David Moore from the Bridgewater Historical Commission at the Bridgewater Public Library on Tuesday, October 9th at 6:30 p.m.

Everybody takes for granted that Bridgewater is located where it is but why. How do you pick a place for a town and once you do how do you plan it out? There are no property bounds set by the Indians or previous settlers. There are no roads to reference. Where do you start? How do you design it? Building a town from scratch is not as easy as playing your favorite video game. Come join us and hear about our town’s history!

The event begins at 6:30 p.m. at the Bridgewater Public Library, is free and open to the public.

What the Rule of St. Benedict Teaches Us About Happiness, Meaning and Community by Judith Valente

2nd & 4th Wednesdays

September 12 – December 12

The Rule of St. Benedict arose from an era when a great civilization was threatened by violence, economic forces that favored the wealthy, political leaders that lacked the trust of the public, and rampant xenophobia. Similar to the anxieties and frustrations of the 6th century, we are living in a time where societies need to stress community over competition, consensus over conflict, simplicity over self-gain, and silence over the constant chatter and distractions of our lives.

The Swedenborgian theology of the Bridgewater New Jerusalem Church honors the good and truth in all traditions and encourages inquiry as a spiritual path to deepening faith.
