Denny had been raised in the Greek Orthodox tradition, and although she and her husband attended First Parish, it was always clear that she was a Christian at heart. This was most apparent yesterday in the references to God and Christ, in hearing a recording of Denny singing ‘The Lord’s Prayer’, in the choir and hymn selections, and most obviously in the postlude, ‘Christ the Lord is Risen Today’. I was deeply touched by how many in the congregation started singing along. Evidently Denny had planned her service and I wouldn’t be surprised if she planned that spontaneous responses as well.
