April 29 – Toward a Culture of Peace with Jim Scott

St. John’s is excited to welcome singer-songwriter Jim Scott to provide a musical worship service entitled “Toward a Culture of Peace.” His songs are in our UU Hymnbooks, including “Gather the Spirit,” and he’s toured the country for nearly three decades playing at over 700 UU churches.   As co-chair of the UU Ministry for the Earth, Jim helped create the Green Sanctuary program, and received a grant from the fund for Unitarian Universalism to assemble the “Earth and Spirit Songbook,” a great contribution to our worship and RE resources.

Formerly a member of the Paul Winter Consort and co-composer of their Missa Gaia/Earth Mass, Jim has gone on to record a number of CDs of his original music and publish a growing line of choral works.  He won the UU Silliman Anthem Contest for his piece “I Am Waiting.”
