June 4
Breaths Rev. – Patti Pomerantz
This song, the second in our teal hymnal, was written by Ysaye Barnwell, a long-time member of Sweet
Honey and the Rock, and a member of All Souls Church, Unitarian in Washington, DC. The song begins
with these words. “Listen more often to things than to beings…’tis the ancestor’s breaths when the fire’s
voice is heard, ‘tis the ancestors’ breath in the voice of the waters.” As we begin to turn our heads
toward summer, and as we struggle to make sense of the unrest in our national Association, these words
help me to pay attention to what was, what is, and what is yet to be.

June 18
Summertime – Rev. Patti Pomerantz
Solstice is just around the corner and thoughts of summertime abound; so, it seems, do songs. Mary
and I will offer a variety of music and musings – all with summertime and the circle of the seasons in
mind. The church year may wind down at the end of this month, but the world around us will not.
What do you think your summer will look like? It will be interesting to compare notes!
Program Leader: Patty Walsh

June 25
Eid al-Fitr: Muslim Feast of Fasting – Rev. Catharine Clarenbach
Fasting appears in tradition after tradition. Why? What does it do for the practitioner? Today we will
explore Abrahamic traditions of fasting and feasting.
Program Leader: Phyllis Adams

July 2
Leonard Cohen: How The Light Gets In – Ron Randall
Singer and songwriter Leonard Cohen, who died late last year, had a true poet’s eye of seeing deep into
the heart of small, powerful truths. We are all broken, flawed people, living in a broken, flawed world.
Yet we still yearn for and find moments of grace through our connections to each other. And he saw
that these two concepts are interwoven. It is through our broken places that the light comes in to heal
us, connect us and revive our tenacious spirits. As we all are living through these wounded days, join
the Eastrose Band on a musical journey into our dark and broken places as we look for the light,
healing and inspiration this path can lead to.
