This Sunday, May 23, 10:00 a.m., “Thoreau’s Walk – and Ours”
Dr. Lawrence Buell

Dr. Buell will speak on the happy coincidence that one of Thoreau’s first unveilings of his great visionary lecture/essay. “Walking,” was a non-sermon in Plymouth, MA on Sunday, May 23, a century and a half ago. Complementing the theme, “Skyborn Music,” with lyrics by Ralph Waldo Emerson and music by Carl Johengen, will be presented by the First Parish Choir. This performance and service honor Music Directory Pauline “Polly” Oliver, who has served First Parish for 25 years.
