This Sunday we welcome touring Unitarian Universalist musician Jim Scott to lead our service with a very special musical worship. This celebration of our planet features Jim’s original songs and readings, as well as his personal reflections on the idea that Mother Earth (“Gaia”) is one, single, living organism. Our spiritual response to this belief is very timely in these days when, as Jim says, “the spirit of life on Earth is in crisis.” Jim’s uplifting songs provide a wakeup call, leaving us with the inspiration to take the planet’s healing into our hands. Our own Heritage Church Choir will have the honor of singing with Jim (and for us) today.
Jim Scott is world-renowned for his work with the Paul Winter Consort, where he was co-composer of their celebrated “Missa Gaia (Earth Mass).” He has long been an activist for peace and the planet, is former co-chair of the UU Ministry for the Earth, wrote “The Earth and Spirit Songbook,” and helped to create the UUA’s Green Sanctuary program (of which Heritage is a proud participant).
Worship Associate: Bill Gupton.
