April 30 – The Seven Deadly Sins
April 30, 2017
The seven deadly sins according to Mahatma Gandhi.
Music: The choir will sing a lovely song called One Voice by Ruth Moody. The song, popularized by the female folk trio known as the Wailin’ Jennys, starts in unison and expands to two-part and then three-part harmony as the text emphasizes the power of singing with one voice alone, with two voices supporting each other and many voices together as one. Jim, our Music Director, will also salute the blooming presence of spring among us with piano arrangements of two movements of the “Spring” Concerto from Vivaldi’s beloved The Fours Seasons.
Religious Education: We will transplant our sprouted plants and discuss if all transformations are positive. We plan to read “Maybe Something Beautiful,” written by F
Isabel Campoy. We will reflect on our growth. We can talk about those notches on the doorframe –how many inches do you think you have grown in a year? If change is unpleasant, wait a few minutes. We live in New England; the weather will change. We can feel the shift from winter to spring. However, not all transformations are deliberate; not all transformations are expected. We can live a better life with a sense of flexibility. Who is the superhero named Superflex, and what is the super power of flexibility and why? Please join us !
