With readings in the form of questions, join Aubrey and Elwood for a provocative and evocative service of songs and queries. How do we get along with those who have different views? Do we need to examine our own intolerance? How do we spark the change and progress we want? Where and what is our action? How do we maintain warm-heartedness? Where do we find peace and rest? What does love demand of us? In this service, Aubrey and Elwood challenge participants to join them in asking difficult questions during turbulent times, in an effort to move forward in positive and helpful ways.
Aubrey Atwater and Elwood Donnelly, folk singers and multi-instrumentalists, are long-time members of the First Unitarian Church of Providence. They present American and Celtic songs with unique vocal harmonies, guitar, mountain dulcimer, Irish whistle, harmonica, banjo, and more. Aubrey and Elwood have spent many years performing in and visiting churches throughout the United States and beyond. For 15 years, they hosted a monthly community spiritual gathering, “Church in the Barn,” in Foster, RI, a community experience that they will forever treasure. And they have also been part of two theological, action, and contemplation groups in Providence. Married since 1989 by Rev. Tom Ahlburn, Aubrey and Elwood have performed widely in the United States and abroad.
