First Parish in Lexington

Our theme this month is “what does it mean to be a people of Trust.” Today we will explore what that might look like not only in a personal way, but as a congregation.  How can live out the values we espouse?  How can we help others to live their values as well?  And so the question becomes:  how can we become better allies?

This Sunday, the sanctuary choir and guest instrumentalists will provide beautiful 18th-century chamber and vocal music and movements from John Rutter’s Requiem. The sanctuary choir will sing Rutter’s poignant and deeply moving “Out of the Deep” and his lyrical and comforting “The Lord is My Shepherd.” They will be accompanied by Veronica Kenney (oboe), Jennifer Morsches (cello), Erik Svenson (horn) and Rip Jackson (piano). Soprano Liz Savir will sing Handel’s joyful “Meine Seele hört im Sehen” (from 9 German Arias, HWV 207) with harpsichord, oboe and cello accompaniment. Veronika Kenney will play Handel’s “Oboe Sonata No. 1” and also his “Largo (from Xerxes) with harpsichord and cello accompaniment.

There will be Sunday school for grades Pre-K through eight. The nursery will be open for infants and toddlers.
