November 19 Service at 10:30 AM in the Church and on Zoom
Jud Woldskill – Guest Speaker
Where a river meets the ocean is known as an estuary. An estuary, in other words, is not one thing or another; it’s where two things meet. What if we cultivated an estuary theology–a theology of the in-between place? Could it help us build the Beloved Community?
Jud Wolfskill (he/him) is a candidate for ministry with the UUA and a graduate of Boston University School of Theology.
Ryan Li, Guest Musician
Ryan Li is a junior, attending Dover Sherborn Regional High School. He started playing the piano when he was six, while living in Minnesota. When he was 11, his family moved to Dover, MA, and that is when he began his studies with Andrea Kaiser at the Wellesley Piano Studio. She remembers being so impressed by his early training with Rozauna Nuguid.
This year, Ryan is tackling some very challenging pieces, including ” Piano Sonata Number 21 by Beethoven, Chopin’s “Grande Waltz Brillante” Opus 18, “Suite Bergamasque” by Debussy, a Bach Toccata and Joe Hisaishi’s “Summer”. He will play the first part of the Waldstein, the Grande Waltz and Summer on November 19th, and then head to Andrea’s to play the Toccata in her Fall Student Recital entitled “A Tribute to Bach” at 4:30 pm.
Ryan isn’t quite sure what he wants to do in the future, but he is confident that music and the piano will always be a part of his life. That being said, Ryan’s favorite subject in school is science, and he hopes to pursue something in that field in college. Besides playing piano, Ryan enjoys going to the gym, running, and eating good food. Ryan’s younger brother, Aiden, is also a student of Andrea’s, and he, too. is turning into a fine musician. He will turn pages for Ryan.
