July Eliot 2021: "Covenant and Collective Action" with Matt Meyer

Saturday, July 17, 2021 at 03:00 PM to Saturday, July 24, 2021 at 12:00 PM

Covenant and Collective Action

Unitarian Universalism is a faith of covenant and collective action.  Our shared spiritual practice informs our work in the world, and our social justice work shapes our spiritual path. This year’s theme talk will be a musical exploration of Unitarian Universalism in the sanctuary, in the home, and in the streets. 

Through song and rhythm, story and reflection (and a lot of participation!) we’ll explore what a radically inclusive, spiritual alive, and justice-centered movement of Unitarian Universalism looks like.

BioMatt is a lifelong UU who lives in Boston and travels as an itinerant worship leader, bringing the good news of Unitarian Universalism to hundreds congregations all over the country.

He graduated from Berklee College of Music in 2004, where he studied hand drumming and world music. Matt has been a keynote speaker for the JPD worship arts festival, Ohio Summer Institute, Allies for Racial Equity national conference, and the annual meeting of the Canadian Unitarian Council. He has also led music for the most of the last fifteen General Assemblies of the UUA.

Matt is a founding worship leader and current Director of Operations for Sanctuary Boston, a contemporary worship community in Boston. He was also a founding member of the Lucy Stone Cooperative and several other cooperatives in the Boston area. 

He is currently an organizer of the UU Songleaders Convergence, a gathering for all UU’s who love community singing to share skills, best practices, and of course, songs, in order to build a more musical movement together.
