Worship & Music Arts at Greater Nashville UU
Worship is a communal and intentional event.
We gather together to hold up those things of ultimate worth, meaning, and value.
Sunday worship services are the congregational communal event for individuals searching for connection to one another, and to the wholeness and possibilities known by many names, including Love.
Sermons, music, stories, readings, and meditations are intended to open our minds and hearts that we may be reasoned thinkers and compassionate doers in service to love, mercy, and justice.
Our ritual of sharing joys and sorrows allows us to bear witness to the stories of our lives.
