Jazz

Any lovers of Jazz amongst us? Of course, there must be. Rather smooth jazz, ragtime or fans of New Orleans “Second Lining”, the origins and soul of jazz provide many images and metaphors of abundant possibilities. As we work towards even more racial and social justice engagement within this congregation and in the Greater Cleveland area, how might we imagine ourselves creating deeper relationships with ourselves and each other, to live the congregation's mission and vision of becoming an “anti-racist, anti-oppressive, multicultural congregation”? The Free Spirit Band will play, and children will start in the service for a Jazzy Time for All Ages before going to their classes.

Passion That Transcends

April 8, 2018

by Reverend Chris Long and

Maura Garin

Worship Associate

“During last year’s Service Auction, I offered a sermon topic to the highest bidder. Laird and Jen Wynn won, and asked for a worship service around the topics of ‘transcendence and passion.’ Both topics resonate deeply with me—what charged to the fore of my mind was how Unitarian Universalism has helped me allow my passions to transcend deep emotions, even anger, throughout the last 18 years. Plus, some special music...see you there!”
