What is it to be a singing human and to join our voices together, and what do we miss when we don’t share in this ancient practice and expression? Our Music Director Ronnie Romano covered for guest Rev. David Ruffin who just got COVID and will be with with us at a later time. Rev. David (and Ronnie) encourage us to find our ways to come home to our voices as fully and freely as we safely can. We donated to Living Lands and Waters for April. Watch a recording of the service here.
