In a follow-up sermon to her MLK sermon, Rev. Anne continues her exploration of the difficulties inherent for African American voices to be heard and valued within our denomination. Today we lift up the Black Lives Unitarian Universalist movement and will have a special collection to support our colleagues of color who have been marginalized through years of white supremacy.
This Sunday, guest pianist Sarah Hager and First Parish tenor soloist Austin Burns will provide inspirational music for worship. Austin will sing 2 African-American spirituals: a rousing arrangement of “Every Time I Feel the Spirit” and a lyrical rendition of “Deep River.” Sarah will play Ludwig van Beethoven’s energetic “Allegro” (from Piano Sonata in C, Op. 2, No. 3), Frederic Mompou’s contemporary piano piece “Trois Variations (1926)” and Barbara Smith’s serene “Woods Walk.”
There will be Sunday School classes for grades Pre-K through eighth. The nursery will be open for infants and toddlers.
