“Going Into the Music”

Rev. Dr. Jane Mauldin and Rev. Paul Beedle
Service time, 11:00 am

New Orleans area UU congregations will gather at the North Shore location for our annual “Hot Art In a Cool Space” worship service. Rev. Jane Mauldin and Rev. Paul Beedle will lead us in celebration and exploration, with music, poetry and stories. We will ask together: “When we attempt to keep feeding a perceived deep hunger of our souls, is it possible that we are actually obscuring the true light and vision of our lives? What happens if we relax and go into the music, the vision, the art that might be an expression of our true selves?” Yes, this may sound like an odd question, but we hope that you will be delighted with the answers that you discover!
