First Parish in Lexington

This morning through story, song, and homily we will explore what it mean for a community to value individual participation. Each person’s gift is so important that we could not be the congregation we are without your own, personal offering. Come and watch our young thespians share a story, and hear a homily by Rev. Anne.

Rev. Anne Mason, Worship Leader

The sanctuary choir, with soloists Chris Hess, Julia Jaffe and Elizabeth Walsh will sing Michael Culloton’s poignant arrangement of “Famine Song,” written by the women’s a cappella ensemble Vida. They will also sing James Green’s arrangement of the Cherokee “Morning Song,” with soloists Austin Burns and Elizabeth Walsh. They will be joined by Ruth Rose (pipes), Sarah Matthews (shakers) and Erik Svenson (bass drum). Julia Jaffe and Elizabeth Walsh will sing Antonio Vivaldi’s glorious “Laudamus Te” (from Gloria). For the centering music and postlude, Rip Jackson will play Antonin Dvorak’s peaceful “Largo” (from The New World Symphony) on the piano and Bach’s powerful “Praeludium in c minor” (BWV 549) on the organ.
