Our Parish Board Co-Chairs, Katie O’Hare Gibson and David Rose, will share the sermon this morning as we continue to explore what it means to be a Unitarian Universalist Church in the changing environment in which we live. As a preamble to our “Imagination Cafe”, Katie and David will share what it means to them to guide a Board who exists to fulfill the mission of the church. Boldly we imagine together what First Parish can become, and consider how we will get there.
This Sunday, our alto soloist Julia Jaffe will provide beautiful operatic music for the worship service. She will sing Christoph Willibald Gluck’s lovely aria “Divinités du Styx” (from Alceste). She will also sing Antonio Vivaldi’s bold aria “Qui Sedes” (from Gloria). For the centering music, Rip Jackson will play J. S. Bach’s lyrical organ arrangement of Vivaldi’s “Adagio” (from Concerto in F Major, “L’Estro Armonico”). And for the postlude, he will play Bach’s powerful “Fuga in c minor, BWV 549.”
There are Sunday school classes for Pre-K through 8th grade. The nursery is open for infants and toddlers.
