Special Music Service Sunday, June 9, 2019

Musician Andrew McKnight is coming to do a special worship service for us! It is titled “Gifts in our Genes”. We would love for you to attend.

He is an Award-winning singer/songwriter, guitarist and poet from northern Virginia’s Blue Ridge

McKnight writes, sings and speaks eloquently of the struggles and successes of rural America.

Nationally-acclaimed singer/songwriter and guitarist celebrates rural America, weaving his masterfully crafted songs, humorous stories and poetic drama into a musical soundscape sketched with shades of Appalachia, tasteful slide and jazzy blues, feisty anthems, and rustic folk.

“With a voice reminiscent of Don McLean, McKnight traverses from old-time Appalachian tunes to contemporary folk and blues, all backed up by his dead-on guitar playing” – The Boston Globe

Here is a taste of his music – https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=qNJoP21AFWg

UU Lent – Day 45 – Rejoice

“There is not one blade of grass, there is no color in this world that is not intended to make us rejoice.”  ― John Calvin

“This is a day of celebration!
Today, we are divorcing the past
and marrying the present.
Dance,
and you will find God
in every room.
Today, we are divorcing resentment
and marrying forgiveness.
Sing,
and God will find you
in every tune.
Today, we are divorcing indifference
and marrying love.
Drink, and play that tambourine
against your thighs.
We have so much celebrating to do!”  ― Kamand Kojouri

“Rejoice in small things and they will continue to grow”
― Slaven Vujic

 

Thank you all for coming on this Lenten Journey with us. May your Easter be Happy and Bright!
