This Sunday, Rev. Anne Mason will reflect on one of our modern prophets, Leonard Cohen, and how his song “Hallelujah” encourages us to find healing by singing in the midst of love or in the midst of pain. When we bring our full selves into worship, we bring our joy and our sorrow, our fears and our joy. Come and worship with us today, wherever you are and however you are feeling. Together we will seek the Holy. Together we will worship.
There will be Sunday School for Pre-K through 8th Grade. The nursery will be open for babies and toddlers.
The sanctuary choir will debut Rip Jackson’s new gospel composition, “The Tables Turned. The children’s choir and soloist David Meharry will sing Bricusse and Newley’s inspiring “Pure Imagination” (from Willy Wonka and the Chocolate Factory). Austin Burns will sing Leonard Cohen’s passionate “Hallelujah.” For the centering music and postlude, Rip Jackson will play two of his own compositions written for First Parish in Lexington — “New England Marshlands” and “Mighty Oaks.”
