Part 1 of 2: Where Do We Come From?




In 1897, Paul Gauguin painted a piece he titled D'où Venons Nous / Que Sommes Nous / Où Allons Nous, which translates as "Where do we come from? What are we? Where are we going?". Composer Bryan Tate visited the Museum of Fine Arts in Boston and then wrote a round, which is now included in our UU hymnal. The round's last line is "life is a riddle and a mystery." Rev. Rebekah will reflect on the mystery of where we came from, both historically and spiritually.
Special music by Bonfire of the Mannakeys. Justin Furnia, piano.
First Fifteen—Three to four Sundays a month, all ages* join in worship in the Sanctuary for the “First Fifteen” minutes, after which those in pre-K through 5th grade follow their teachers to their classrooms. Parents of pre-K through 3rd grade are asked to sign their children out from classes promptly at the end of worship; children in 4th grade and up will be dismissed to find their parents at the end of class. *Nursery care for infants—3-year-olds is available during the entire service in Building 3, Room 33.
