"Power Over"
Preaching: The Rev. Sarah C. Stewart
Humans are tempted to have power over other people. So many institutions in our modern world are built on the power of "power-over". But our covenant with the Divine is built on "power-with"--shared power to create, to build, and to heal.
Madeline Browning (flute) joins the Chamber Choir for
Bach's "Subdue Us Through Thy Kindness"
and Hildebrand's "Psalm 121"

"The Use and Abuse of Anger"
Preaching: The Rev. Sarah C. Stewart
The Rev. Sarah C. Stewart preaching. Yoda taught us that "fear leads to anger, anger leads to hate." Anger can lead to the evil of violence, the echo chamber of outrage, and maybe even to the Dark Side. But anger can also spur us to action and help heal the world.
Madeline Browning & Ellen Thompson present recorder duets. Long enjoyed in the Renaissance and Baroque periods, these flute-like instruments have enjoyed a return to popularity because of their clear and sweet sounds.

"Everyone Within the Circle"
Preaching: The Rev. Sarah C. Stewart
 Our First Unitarian Church is a place of love, fellowship, worship, connection and service. This church thrives because we know that every person matters and no one is left out. We join together with our ancestors to support our church and its building, so that our mission may thrive
for centuries to come.
The Festival Choir and Court Hill Jazz Ensemble help celebrate the Capital Campaign with congregational favorites: "Feel Good,"
"Let the Church Say Amen,"  "The House of Faith Has Many Rooms,"
and "Built on a Rock." Oboist Colton Cox also joins us for
additional special music.

Palm Sunday
"Daily Bread"
Preaching: The Rev. Sarah C. Stewart
We pray every Sunday to be given "our daily bread"--which might mean, "give us what we need to get us through." What do we need to get through hard times? Love and grace sustain us and see us through.
The Festival Choir celebrates Palm Sunday with extraordinary anthems:
"Praise His Holy Name"(Hampton), "In Remembrance"(Daley), "Come, Renew Us"(Daley). We premiere First U member Paul Gallagher's
"Come Into This Place"
