Deeper Than the Skin (no audio or text)

Sunday, October 28
Greg Greenway, Guest Artist
Deeper Than The Skin is the phrase that Greg Greenway and his friend of 30 years, Reggie Harris, came up with to describe their relationship. Born three days apart and from two different cultures – one white, one African-American – they met on separate paths through the same geographic portal, Richmond, VA. This service tells the story of their lives through the lens of Greg’s southern upbringing and his journey to Unitarian Universalism. How do we come together? Where do we start? How do we reach beyond our comfort zone? The unadorned truth is our most powerful guide.

Bio: Greg Greenway, a folk musician who has toured solo internationally and released eight solo CDs, is one-third of the musical group Brother Sun, which has performed at the UU General Assembly and many years at the Southeast UU Summer Institute.

Rev. Claudia Jiménez, Minister of Faith Development
Throughout our lives, we often dislodge some of the certainties we embraced. This Sunday, during our whole church service, we explore how certainty in our beliefs can provide refuge during difficult times as well keep us from being open to new ideas or experiences. As you prepare for Sunday worship you are invited to consider some of the “used-to-thinks” from your childhood and adulthood. Click on the title to continue.
