Weekly Pastor's Letter
This past Monday night, some family and friends invited us to their 27th annual Passover seder. I was at the first one they held and have been able to visit somewhat regularly over the years. I am always grateful for the invitation. With that in mind, I hope that YOU will be daring enough to make an invitation this week.
Worship begins at 11:00am. You will not want to miss the musical prelude beginning at 10:45 with the Triton Brass Quintet, who will help us thrill our songs and hymns of resurrection and praise into being. Hallelujahs and alleluias will abound both in our congregational hymns, and in the music of Handel, Britten, and Randall Thompson.
We will end the week with the festive fanfare of Easter and our guest musicians, the Triton Brass Quintet. But the week takes an emotional dip with a couple of deep, dark nights before coming into the glorious dawn of Easter morning.

The next concert is Tuesday, April 22nd at 7 pm in the Parlor. The concert, "Exploring Late Style", will open with Schumann's wild and ardent g minor piano trio, and conclude with Mozart's Divertimento, a glorious, poetic work for string trio.
Sunday, March 30th, the United Parish collected a special offering for One Great Hour of Sharing that you can still participate in. John Bowman introduced a short video about One Great Hours of Sharing:
There is truly nothing more exciting than singing with brass quintet and organ on Easter Sunday, and for the first year in many, we're going to do just that with the Triton Brass Quintet. If you were here on the fourth Sunday of Advent, you heard Triton, and were dazzled by them.
