“The Language of Gratitude”
There is an old saying that says “if you have forgotten the language of gratitude, you will never be on speaking terms with happiness.” What is it about practicing the habit of gratitude that actually makes us happier? In the troubled world in which we live, it is important to spend some time reflecting on that for which we are truly grateful.
Rev. Anne Mason, Worship Leader
This Sunday, guest concert pianist Yukino Sekino joins First Parish soprano soloist Elizabeth Walsh in sharing their music gifts during the morning worship service. Elizabeth will sing Richard Farina’s serene “Where Gentle Tides Go Rolling By” and Irving Berlin’s energetic “I’ve got the Sun in the Morning” (from Annie Get Your Gun). Yukino will also play W. A. Mozart’s playful “Allegro Moderato” (from Sonata in C major, K. 330), Maurice Ravel’s lyrical “Mouvement de Menuet” (from Sonatine), and J. S. Bach’s noble “Allemande” (from French Suite No. 5 in G major, BWV 816).
