Gaia, Mother Earth and the Oneness of Everything
A Worship Service with musician Jim Scott
UU musician Jim Scott intersperses original songs and readings with his personal reflections on a spiritual ecological awareness. The idea of Mother Earth or "Gaia" being a living organism with the same physical attributes as humans leads us to a deeper connection with our life support system. Jim holds that churches can offer the "spiritual response" so timely now, as "the spirit of life on earth is in crisis." Jim's uplifting songs provide the balance to the "wake up call," leaving participants with a vision and inspiration to take the healing into our own hands.
From his work with the Paul Winter Consort, where he was co-composer of their celebrated "Missa Gaia / Earth Mass" Jim has long been an activist for peace and the earth with his music. Former Co Chair of the UU Ministry for the Earth, Jim helped create the "Green Sanctuary" program. His songs of earth have educated and inspired audiences across the US and the world and his "Earth and Spirit Songbook," supported by a grant from the Fund for Unitarian Universalism, has been widely acclaimed by UU congregations
