“Kuan Yin: Buddhist Madonna”
May 14, 2017
10:30 am - 11:30 am
First Parish in Lexington
Kuan Yin is the Bodhisattva of compassion for most of the Eastern Buddhist world. What inspires reverence in her? What would it mean to be like Kuan Yin in the modern world? And what have our mothers taught us about responding to the cries of the world with wisdom and love?
Rev. Anne Mason, Worship Leader
This Sunday guest pianist Hannah Shields and sanctuary choir soloists Julia Jaffe and Elizabeth Walsh will provide music for worship. Julia will sing Antonín Dvořák’s beautiful aria “Song to the Moon” (from Rusalka, Op.114). For the centering music, offertory, and postlude, Hannah Shields will play Robert Schumann’s “Traumerei” (from Scenes from Childhood, Op. 15), Grieg Lyric’s “To Spring” and Franz Schubert’s “Moment Musicaux, No. 1.”
