Grateful Harmony Imbolc Concert with Simon de Voil
Feb 1 @ 7:00 pm – 8:30 pm

 

Celebrating Imbolc & St. Brigid’s Feast Day

Grateful harmony is a concert series that falls on the pagan cross quarter days. Consisting of song, ritual and conversation to explore the sacred.

Simon de Voil, the Music Minister at Unity Church, hosts the evening, and I am his special guest!

I perform original, medieval, and Celtic chant and song weaving Celtic ornamentation with haunting, mystical invocations and prayers. I have performed and toured with various ensembles over the years and have recorded 4 CDs. Singing since I was a child, music often rises up within me to become song. Singing is my primary channel to the Divine Mystery. You can have a listen on my old website

 

I’d be honored to share this evening with you!

Walk in Beauty, Zoom Unitarian Universalist Service
Aug 16 @ 10:00 am – 11:00 am

Sometimes life can feel pretty overwhelming with all that is happening in the world. How do we find our way? What is right action for us? What if the answer were as simple as choosing to walk in beauty in each moment? Join Interfaith Minister and QUUF member Katy Taylor to unpack what it means to walk in beauty and to explore how to make it real in our daily lives.

This service will also include Katy singing, joined by Heidi Mattern.

Winter Solstice Celebration via Zoom
Dec 21 @ 7:00 pm – 8:00 pm

Solstice SpiralJoin us for a contemplative, Earth-centered, Celtic-inspired ritual to mark the turning of the year as the darkness gives way to the growing light. This participatory ritual will include calling in the Directions, chanting & singing, meditation, candle-lighting, and deep connection with this seasonal turning of the year.

Unlike our in-person ritual, this one is not particularly kid-friendly. 🙁

Plan to have with you a candle and matches as well as a noisemaker (rattle, shaker, bell) for the Light Returning section. Because of intermittent connectivity with Zoom, participants will remain muted until invited at certain times in the ritual to unmute. Chants and songs will be participatory and lyrics will be posted in the Chat.

Contact Katy to request the zoom link.
