The West Shore Choir will present Gloria by Vivaldi, which features solos and duets from members of the choir and will be accompanied by a small Chamber Orchestra with the core ensemble being the Amethyst String Quartet. Upon your arrival in the Rotunda, you will be greeted with The West Shore Consort offering some traditional carols prepared by the collaborative efforts of the great Robert Shaw and Alice Parker.
What sources do you really draw from for inspiration? Do you trust the teachings of science and technology? Do you believe the language of a higher power or draw from the deeper wells of the earth's inspiration? Do you trust your own reason and experience or find comfort in a guided faith? This sermon will probe your assumptions and challenge you to act on your beliefs.
Reverend Christina Neilson, SouthWest UU Church, North Royalton, Ohio
These are the days of Advent, the days of waiting before the coming of Christmas and the birth of Jesus. Advent is a contemplative, quiet liturgical season. This second Sunday of Advent, we will consider what this season can teach us about waiting with trust, trusting through the dark times of our lives and this dark season of the year.
