All Souls: The Anchor
Unitarian Universalist Church of Greater Lynn (MA) Rev. Dr. Victoria Weinstein, Parish Minister Kenneth Griffith II, Music Director and Soloist David Collins, Piano Sermon: "The Anchor" on the life of John Murray, Father of American Universalism. Aller Seelen by Richard Strauss All Souls' Day English Translation © Richard Stokes Set on the table the fragrant mignonettes, Bring in the last red asters, And let us talk of love again As once in May. Give me your hand to press in secret, And if people see, I do not care, Give me but one of your sweet glances As once in May. Each grave today has flowers and is fragrant, One day each year is devoted to the dead; Come to my heart and so be mine again, As once in May. Translation © Richard Stokes, author of The Book of Lieder (Faber, 2005)
Make Sacred Space
Unitarian Universalist Church of Greater Lynn (MA) Rev. Dr. Victoria Weinstein, Parish Minister Part of virtual service for October 25, 2020 On the cusp of Daylight Savings Time and increasing darkness, and in a time of struggle and profound uncertainty, it is imperative that we access, nurture and protect the sacred space within ourselves. No matter where we are or what happens, this inviolate aspect of our being is connected with creation, with the holy, and with the great soul in which all living things "live and move and have their being." The sermon references the 2020 Netflix documentary, "My Octopus Teacher," which you may choose to watch before Sunday.
