Gaia, Mother Earth, & the Oneness of Everything

April 28, 2024 10:00 am

Music Sunday with musician Jim Scott and the First Parish Choir

We will celebrate the earth with Jim’s original songs, readings, and personal reflections on Mother Earth or “Gaia” being one living organism.  Our “spiritual response” is so timely now, as “the spirit of life on earth is in crisis. Jim’s uplifting songs provide the balance to the wake-up call, leaving us with vision and inspiration to take the healing into our own hands. The choir will join Jim on several songs, and there will also be an opportunity for all to sing throughout the service.

From his work with the Paul Winter Consort, where he was co-composer of their celebrated “Missa Gaia/Earth Mass,” Jim has long been an activist for peace and the Earth through his music. He has visited over 700 UU churches in four decades, and his songs are in our hymn books. Former Co-Chair of the UU Ministry for the Earth, Jim helped create the “Green Sanctuary” program.
