The Transformative Power of Music

This service will be filled with music from our Sacred Breath choir and the voices of our Beloved Community as we sing both familiar and new songs. We’ll explore music’s power to transform us and also how we can use the power of music to transform the world.

  • The Share the Plate recipient for March 17 and 24 will be the Teacher Support Network, a program of the Madison Public Schools Foundation, which helps MMSD teachers buy needed resources for their students. From pencils to snacks to winter gear, this fund allows teachers an option other than their personal funds to address unmet student needs. They were nominated by Joan Kemble.
