The Year to Save the Earth

Led by: Jim Scott
Worship Associate: Rev. Christine
Music: Songwriter Jim Scott, with the UUCP choir

Mixing powerful songs and beautiful projected images, “The Year to Save the Earth” takes us from celebration to grieving, protest to positive vision for the planet. Jim Scott’s lyrical melodies and outspoken poetry celebrate what’s beautiful, amazing, and fragile about this planet. As well as hard reality, the program’s message is one of optimism with many invitations to join in the singing. Facing the urgency of the environmental crisis, the songs challenge us to feel, to learn and to act.

The Unsettling Power of Easter

Led by: Rev Christine
Worship Associate: Carrie Lifshitz
Music: Open Strings, Choir

Surprises can be startling, exhilarating, frightening or bewildering. As we contemplate the Christian story of Easter, we will be looking at the story from the perspective of surprise--the Easter surprise that was all of those things and how it can lead to promise but it may make us quite unsettled in the process. Join us after service for the surprises that our kids will find in their special Easter Egg Hunt.
