Coming on the heels of Saturday night’s concert by Greg Greenway and Reggie Harris, “Deeper Than The Skin” takes on additional intensity in the worshipful setting of a UU service. Concentrated into one hour, their presentation takes a more anthropological/cultural bent that consistently makes congregations glad to have seen both the full presentation and the worship service.
The music flowing from their stories becomes even more central to the emotional experience. The remarkable story of a 30-year friendship by two men, one white, one black, one from the North, one from the South, brings into focus the principles that ground us in community each week. How did they come together, how can we all come together? How do we take on the life-long commitment required to make a more racially just world?
