Sermon:  "Eternal Rivers; Sacred Memoryscapes"

Speaker: David Brule

Musicians:  Kit Johnson and Choir

Worship Leader:  Kate Mason

'Eternal Rivers, Sacred Memoryscapes' has at its core our local region where the confluence of five rivers has been at the heart of our spiritual and physical heritage for at least 14,000 years. This sermon will probe into some of the secrets of this sacred landscape and remind us of the memories embedded in our hills, rivers, and hidden yet knowable deep histories. David will share personal stories of insights found in this valley of eternal, living, and troubled waters flowing through our dwelling places on this small part of the sacred earth.

David is president of the Nolumbeka Project, Inc, coordinator of the National Park Service study of the King Philips War and that war's impact on our region, a local author and historian, chairman of the Nehantic Tribal Council. He lives in the Paguag/Millers River watershed in his ancestral home of 150 years, savoring the natural surroundings of this river valley, exploring the links between local history and life in the present.


Kit (Keith) Johnson grew up and spent his early career in Denver Colorado and Wyoming.  He served as the musical director of the Presidio Playhouse in San Francisco and director of the 6th Army Soldiers Chorus until he won a Federal test case against Melvin Laird for Conscientious Objection during the Viet Nam era.  He played various night clubs in the Seattle area while earning a M.A. in choral conducting, finished Ph.D. studies at the Eastman School of Music and had a career in teaching mostly at the college and high-school level.  He was music director at All Souls Unitarian Universalist Society in New London CT for 21 years. 


The All Souls Board has changed the current COVID-19 policy to a masks required policy.
