ALL MUSIC SERVICE AT 10:30. When English, Irish, and Scottish immigrants crossed the Atlantic to begin new lives in America, they couldn’t bring much with them. One thing that traveled along was a rich musical tradition. The music of Appalachia is rooted deeply in that heritage. This year’s All Music service is a celebration of American music inspired by shape note singing and the Sacred Harp tradition. This service will be followed by a cookout on the lawn! Bring a side dish and/or a dessert to share.

Justice is a key concept in two of our seven principles (2 and 6). So what does "Justice" look like? Are there parts to Justice? Types? Is it a response, like to the situation in Baltimore, or can it exist on its own?
