On Friday, December 21, First Parish in Lexington will present our first Winter Solstice Experience. With music and candles, dancing and darkness, we will experience the quiet of the longest night, and welcome the sun as we wait for her return. This will be a worship service exploring earth-centered imagery, with an invitation to cherish the darkness.
Led by Rev. Anne Mason and Music Director Rip Jackson, the service will include Skyloom Inter-generational Dancers as well as music by Katie Runde, sax and clarinet, and Marybeth McCaffrey, soprano. Also participating will be Lisa Maria Steinberg, Director of Religious Education and Family Ministry, and First Parish members Amy Johnson and Elisabeth Jas. Our special guest will be Alberto Taxo, an indigenous Ecuadoran shaman.
The Winter Solstice Experience is free and open to the public. First Parish is located at 7 Harrington Rd, Lexington. Parking is in the rear of the church.
