    10:30am Service: Worship Through Music
    Celebrants: Sharon Page, Chris Rader
    Music is very powerful. It’s used for entertainment, or can be used to influence the mind– inducing emotions and setting the stage for many things mentally and spiritually. Hymns and other music are used in UU services to express joy, celebrate our interconnectedness, and guide us into contemplation and reverence. During this service we will explore the power of music, and you will get a chance to join together in singing a number of UU hymns. We’ll also enjoy the talents of some CUUF musicians!
