#ShareUUMusic

Of Deep Peace, Douglas says, “I wanted to write the most beautiful melodies that I could, so for inspiration, I went to one of the great melodic traditions in the world, the British Isles folk music tradition.” It’s precisely this inspiration, combined with the lush influence of the Renaissance choral music tradition, that gives Deep Peace its unique beauty.

Deep peace of the running wave to you.
Deep peace of the flowing air to you.
Deep peace of the quiet earth to you.
Deep peace of the shining stars to you.
Deep peace of the infinite peace to you.

Rev. Rick Hoyt-McDaniels, a big wholehearted THANK YOU!

UUCLB, your Worship Committee thanks the Reverend Rick Hoyt-McDaniels for his service for the last 2-1/2 years. His last Sunday in the pulpit was June 21st, and it was a wonderful send off. The Reverend Lissa Gundlach’s first Sunday full time in the pulpit will be August 23rd.

The eight Sundays in-between were our privilege to fill with guest speakers! Shea Winterberger suggested that we consider something her Alaska church did the summer before their new settled minister began, a “Religious Exploration” series. We have asked speakers from varying faiths to come and talk about how we can expand our awareness and understanding of our broader community and the commonalities we share.

We asked each of our guests to use one or two of the Seven Principles as a point of connection, and we invited them to speak to our Congregation about their faith and spiritual community, the challenges they face, and where we may share common ground.

We also included a few UUCLB’ers to speak about themes they are passionate about that mixed in well with our overall theme of ‘Religious Exploration.’

Here is your full summer Religious Exploration Series line-up. 10:00 a.m., Sunday mornings, via Zoom Meeting.

We hope you can join us:
