“The Risk to Grow”
Jan 6, 2019
10:30 am - 11:30 am
First Parish in Lexington
We may be ready to say ‘good-bye’ to this past year – but are we ready to say ‘hello’ to the next? In every possibility there is the chance to open ourselves to something new – but this may require us to take some chances, to let go of old assumptions, and prepare to grow. Let us welcome, together, the opportunities which lie ahead of us. Preaching today will be Rev. Anne Mason
The sanctuary choir will sing Johannes Brahms passionate “How Lovely is Thy Dwelling Place” (from Ein Deutsches Requiem) and Joseph Martin’s joyful “Great, Great Morning” (a gospel mashup of “My Lord, What a Morning” and “Great Day”). Chelsea Cannon will sing Josh Groban’s inspirational song “The Mystery of your Gift.” For the centering music and postlude, Rip Jackson will play Mozart’s lyrical “Andante” (from the Piano Sonata in Bb Major, K. 333) and Bach’s powerful organ work “Praeludium” (from the Praeludium et Fuga in c minor, BWV 549).
There will be Sunday school classes for grades Pre-K through eight. The nursery will be open for infants and toddlers.
