Jim Scott, composer/musician

Join in welcoming back UU composer Jim Scott for a special service of his music — a multimedia, musical message. This is the pre-premier, sneak preview of “The Year to Save the Earth.” Jim’s powerful and poignant songs of Earth and Ecology are illustrated with beautiful and striking images shown on our big screen. Come celebrate our Mother Earth, the challenges, and the hope for the future! Our choir will offer several of the anthems, and there’s many opportunities to sing along. Across four decades, composer, poet, and activist Jim Scott has performed in more than 700 UU Churches. His much loved “Gather the Spirit” and others are included in our UU hymnbooks. Jim was one of the creators of the “Green Sanctuary” program, and he compiled The Earth and Spirit Songbook, 110 songs of ecology and peace. Longtime member of the Paul Winter Consort, Jim co-wrote their celebrated “Missa Gaia/Earth Mass.” He has gone on to create award winning choral works, PBS soundtracks, and nine CDs of original music. Jim received an NEA grant to create and produce “The Year to Save the Earth” multimedia concert. He hopes to take it everywhere. 

Daylight Savings Time ends, so we’ll set our clocks back an hour.
