"In the Name of Love: A Musical Service on the Journey to Unitarian Universalism"
By Greg Greenway
Description: In the Name of Love: A musical Service on the Journey to Unitarian Universalism. This service sprung from a conversation had at the UU in Richmond between Dr. Elias Ortega-Aponte, the new dean of Meadville-Lombard and about 25 member of the congregation. He invited the conversation illustrating his commitment to bring congregational experience into the training at seminary. He is a courageous man. We talked about what it means to be UU, how do you tell someone who has no idea about our religion what exactly it is we believe. Everyone agreed that the first part is about social justice, but what's next? For Theists, they tend to glaze over when we proceed without a God in the pantheon. This started me thinking about the first principle and it's corresponding passages across all religions. When you are truly committed to the first principle, that is a lifetime commitment. It is all about connection, the inescapable web of destiny as Dr. King expressed it. As my songs are the journal of my journey. This service uses them to demonstrate my feelings and experiences of separateness, and my journey toward UUism.
Greg Greenway is one of those artists who is so rich a talent that it is difficult to categorize him. He traverses, combines and mixes up musical genres, and manages to open a window on global events that bring us together
as citizens of the world. Like other great performers before him, Greenway's message is that we can all play a part and make a difference in the course of both our private and public lives. But few musicians can do just this with such
style, passion and sheer musicality.
