“What We Need is Here”
As we prepare for the Thanksgiving holiday, come to church and be with us in the here and now. This All Ages service will celebrate some of the many ways we engage with the Sacred—through ritual, song, poetry, and being in community.
This Sunday, the First Parish children’s choir will sing a beautiful setting of “All Good Gifts” by Lon Beery. McKenna O’Hare Gibson will play an improvisation on the organ for the centering music. The Sanctuary choir will sing John Leavitt’s joyful arrangement of Handel’s “With the Voice of Joy and Thanksgiving” and Maurice Greene’s lovely anthem “Thou Visitest the Earth” with David Meharry singing the solo part. For the postlude, Rip Jackson will play Alfred V. Fedak’s bombastic organ work “Kingsfold Trumpet.”
