“What On Earth Were We Thinking?”
This Sunday we celebrate Earth Day, both rejoicing in the beauty of the Earth, and looking at our responsibility to care for the Earth. Members of the Climate Justice Team will be participating with Rev. Anne today as we explore our connection to the Earth.
Rev. Anne Mason, Worship Leader
Today’s music will uplift the natural world. The sanctuary choir, with soloists Austin Burns and Toni Tasker, will sing Paul Halley’s beautiful arrangement of “For the Blue Green Hills of Earth” (from Paul Winter’s Missa Gaia: A Mass for the Earth) and John Rutter’s inspiring anthem “For the Beauty of the Earth.” David Meharry will sing Carolyn McDade’s reverent “Rising Green” for the introit. Rip Jackson will play Paul Sullivan’s serene piano work “Rising Moon” (from Paul Winter’s Silver Solstice) and J. S. Bach’s joyful organ piece “Praeludium in C Major, BWV 553” during the centering music and postlude.
