What are the commitments in your life that have shaped you? Remember the quote from our hymnal, Singing the Living Tradition: “It behooves us to be careful what we worship, for what we are worshiping we are becoming.” Worship service led by our Minister, Rev. Anne Mason.
Music: This Sunday, the First Parish Sanctuary choir, with Zach Savir and McKenna O’hare Gibson on percussion will sing Kenneth H. Moore’s energetic “Live Peace!” in a virtual video created by Chris Hess. Meg Newhouse on flute and Rip Jackson on harpsichord will play Johann Sebastian Bach’s beautiful “Siciliano” (from the Flute Sonata in Eb Major BWV 1031). Our tenor soloist Nate Ramsayer will sing Stephen Schwartz’s hopeful song “Beautiful City” (from Godspell – 1971). And for the postlude, Rip Jackson will play his organ arrangement of George Frideric Handel’s “Alla Hornpipe” (from the “Suite in D major, HWV 349” The Water Music – 1717) on First Parish’s magnificent 1898 Hutchings 32-rank tracker organ.

The five smooth stones of James Luther Adams’ liberal faith remind us that to be Unitarian Universalist means to do the work of justice. Hear from First Parish families how they make a commitment to justice and consider what calls us all to make a commitment to make change in the world. Worship service led by Lisa Maria Andreoli Steinberg, Director of Religious Education and Family Ministry.

Rooted in Hindu mythology, Holi celebrates the triumph of good over evil, the arrival of spring, the passing of winter, the beginning of a good harvest season, and the blossoming of love. The first evening is known as Holika Dahan (burning of demon Holika). The second day is to play, laugh, forgive, let bygones be bygones and rejoice in relationships.
