A virtual service led by Music Director Hal Walker and Worship Associate Rev. Christie Anderson with special musical guest Peter Mayer.
Peter Mayer is best known for writing one of the UU hymn favorites, Blue Boat Home. Peter will be sharing songs and a sermon called “Church of What We Know” about the story that science tells about our universe—a story about the Big Bang and the evolution of life—and how we can develop a spiritual connection to that story.
More about Peter . . . Minnesota’s Peter Mayer has been singing and songwriting full-time for 25 years, performing in venues across the United States and beyond. He writes songs for a small planet–songs about interconnectedness and the human journey–songs about life on earth and the mysterious and wondrous fact of our existence. He also writes songs about dress hats, pumpkins and pajamas, and even love and freight trains just like a good folk musician should. His music has been performed by artists like Kathy Mattea, David Wilcox, Claudia Schmidt, Anne Hills, Priscilla Herdman, Darryl Purpose, Billy Jonas, and Ronny Cox, to name a few. His work has been included in song books, church hymnals, and folk radio playlists across the country. Peter has eleven albums to his credit, and has sold over 100,000 of them. He lives in Stillwater, Minnesota with his wife and two daughters.
