Jim intersperses songs and reflections on a spiritual ecological awareness. Drawing on his own music and other songs of ecology, diversity, community and peace Jim turns the congregation into the choir, with an invitation to all to join in the joyful music. Jim holds that churches can offer the “spiritual response” so timely now, as “the spirit of life on earth is in crisis.” Jim’s uplifting songs provide the balance to the “wake up call,” leaving participants with a vision and inspiration to take the healing into our own hands.
Jim has long been an activist for peace and the earth with his music. He helped create the “Green Sanctuary” program and his songs are in our hymnbooks. As a member of the Paul Winter Consort, he was co-composer of their celebrated “Missa Gaia/Earth Mass.” Jim’s “Earth and Spirit Songbook,” supported by a grant from the Fund for Unitarian Universalism, has been widely acclaimed by UU congregations.
