Sunday, May 5th @ 10:30 AM

Join Special Guest, Jim Scott: singer-songwriter, eco-activist, and former musician with the Paul Winter Consort, as he presents his original work Gaia, Mother Earth, and the Oneness of Everything.  We will celebrate the earth with 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.

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 with his music. He’s visited over 700 UU churches in four decades.   His much loved piece “Gather the Spirit” and a number of others are included in the two most recent UU hymnbooks.  Former Co-chair of the UU Ministry for the Earth, Jim was involved in creating the “Green Sanctuary” program.  He was awarded a grant from the Fund for Unitarian Universalism to compile and arrange the Earth and Spirit Songbook, a collection of over 100 songs of earth and peace that has been acclaimed as a great resource for worship and RE programs.

Jim speaks with passion on ecology, justice and peace, and often works with choirs, inspiring singers to new levels of expression.  His lyrical poetry and stories are calls to action, full of hope and gentle wit. As song-leader he lifts joyous participation from congregations.
