Church to host speaker Sunday, June 8

First Church of Christ, Scientist, Kennebunk, will sponsor a talk by Laura Lapointe of Lexington, Massachusetts, titled, You: Blessed, Worthy, Beloved at 2 p.m. Sunday, June 8 at the church, 5 Heritage Lane.

While watching a profile of the Boys Choir of Harlem, Lapointe talked with a boy about grace and ended up doing an internship at the Boys Choir in Harlem and working there.

Singing and praying have always been her love, and have led to opportunities to do a variety of meaningful types of work. Lapointe worked at a prison where she taught literacy skills and provided case management for inmates who were transitioning back into communities. She volunteered as a mediator after getting trained at Harvard Law School for a community program there. She has a Master of Divinity focusing on worship, theology and the arts.
