    In our UU Singing the Journey (STJ) hymnal, we find an Indigenous American chant taught to Environment Educator and Musician Hawk Hurst when he visited the Hoopa Tribe in the Northwest of our beautiful state of California. The song is aptly named "The Earth is Our Mother" as its lyrics remind us of our obligation to care for Mother Earth as she cares for (and nourishes) each of us.

    Join Rev Maggie as we celebrate Earth in our Sunday Service this week and open our Worship theme for the month of April.
