First Parish in Lexington


The great Chinese sage Lao Tsu taught us that ‘he who knows that enough is enough will always have enough.”  Rev. Anne will explore the timeless teaching of the Tao Te Ching as we seek a new way of being through the study of ancient wisdom.

trebleclefThis Sunday our tenor soloist Austin Burns will sing Leonard Bernstein’s serenely beautiful “Simple Song” (from Mass). Austin Burns, Rip Jackson, Dave Meharry and Ben Soule will sing Peter Amidon’s male a cappella arrangement of “Simple Gifts.” Elisabeth Jas will join them in singing Ysaye Barnwell’s deeply moving “Breaths,” which was made famous by Sweet Honey in the Rocks. For the centering music and postlude, Rip Jackson will play Bach’s lyrical organ arrangement of the slow movement from one of Vivaldi’s concertos for violin (from L’Estro Armonico) and John Stanley’s lively “Voluntary in C Major.”
