“Courage for Joy”
Jun 4, 2017
10:30 am - 11:30 am
First Parish in Lexington
This month we begin our exploration of what it means to be a community of Joy. As Molly Fumia says: “To be joyful in the universe is a brave and reckless act. The courage for joy springs not from the certainty of human experience, but the surprise.” Let us be together in community, welcoming the members who have joined us this year, and preparing for our Annual Meeting following the service. May it be a joyful morning for us all!
This Sunday, we welcome guest organist and conductor Sarah Hager. She will direct the sanctuary choir in singing John Rutter’s serene “Gaelic Blessing” and Mark Miller’s energetic “Draw the Circle” with soloist Toni Tasker. Elizabeth Walsh will sing J. S. Bach’s beautiful setting of “Bist Du Bei Mir” (from Anna Magdalena Bach Book). Sarah Hager will play Johann Pachelbel’s energetic “Toccata in F Major” and Larry Shackley’s lovely arrangement of the Gaelic melody “Morning Has Broken” for the centering music and postlude.
