Music: Sun Mar 12

The Blues---a musical style, but also the embodiment of artistic expression in the face of human suffering. Sunday morning’s service explores the role of the Blues in accepting life’s trials, and finding meaning and beauty even in the most difficult times. Jazz great Charles Eubanks –all the way from North Franklin, NY--provides his personal touch, with original compositions and improvisations. CUUC’s Choir is also on hand, offering reflective selections with soloists Kim Force and Ernie Kennedy.  Read on for programming details.
