“Love the Hell out of this World!” with minister and drummer Matt Meyer, Sun, Dec 2, 10 am

A special service,  “Love the Hell out of this World,”  with minister and drummer Matt Meyer will be held at the Springfield Unitarian Universalist Meetinghouse on December 2 at 10 am.  When the culture around us doesn’t encourage us to our best selves, how do we model the kind of world we want to live in? Matt will reflect on the good and bad of middle school, the time he picked the very best costume for a high-stakes 5th grade costume party, & how we find the skills for beloved community.
Matt is a musician and community organizer who has led hundreds of services for UU congregations across the country. He has a degree in hand drumming and has studied abroad in Cuba, Ghana and Central America. Matt serves as Director of Community Life for Sanctuary Boston and is a founding resident of the Lucy Stone Cooperative in Roxbury.

Drummer Matt Meyer will hold a “Drumming & Spirituality” workshop at the Springfield UU Meetinghouse on Sunday, Dec. 2, 12-1:30 pm.  This will be a chance for people of all skill levels to participate in hands on rhythm-making. We’ll tour instruments from around the world and experience the connection of community drumming through activities, stories, and discussions. We’ll also look at how rhythm and music intersect with Unitarian Universalist values.  Bring your own drum if you have one; for those who don’t, enough will provided.
