Ken Sizemore: “The Many Ways We Love”

Folksinger Ken Sizemore, a Unitarian Universalist, now living in Nashville, TN, will be our guest presenter on Sunday, Nov. 12. Visitors and guests are always welcome at our progressive Fellowship. Services begin at 11 a.m., but join us early for coffee and conversation.

Ken, who bills himself as “the Old Folkie, performs for UU congregations throughout the Southeast. He’s been a guest presenter here many times. This Sunday he’ll perform a new set that he describes this way:

“Rather than presenting a group of ‘normal’ love songs that tell about romantic love between two people, I’ll sing songs that express love for other very important things that most of us encounter in life. A song of love for a child and a song of love for a parent. I’ll sing a song of love for the Earth and one for old folks. There will be a song that celebrates just being alive in the world, and a song of love for a lifetime best friend. I’ll also offer a song of love between two generations.”

The centerpiece of each service is a short talk, either by a Fellowship member or a guest speaker. Talks are usually related to the principles and values of Unitarian Universalism, but the topics range widely. Science, art, literature, social action—our spiritual interests are eclectic. Services also include music, meditation, readings and opportunities (always optional) to share your thoughts. And we’re done by noon.
