December 8, 2019, "The Power of Chant" — Rev. Margie Allen
This morning we experience a little bit of what our Vespers service are like, with a little more explanation than you get in that darkness and candlelight. Short readings, chants and songs with many repetitions, a luxurious silence, and other delights of the low word count life. The Unicorn Choir and Bethany Riddle provide the music.
December 15, 2019, "Light" - The Third Source (#3 in a series) — Rev. Margie Allen
“Wisdom from the world's religions which inspires us in our ethical and spiritual life.” A close look at the third of the six sources from which our living tradition draws. We read wise words by holiday-light. En-light-enment. The Unicorn Choir, Tom Pelletier & Ron Posnack, and Bethany Riddle share the gift of music.
