Last Sunday, we had Dana Decker visiting us from Los Angeles. Dana is the contemporary worship associate at First Unitarian Universalist in San Diego, a studio and touring musician, and a songwriter. I linked to his CD of UU-oriented worship music several posts ago.
He worked with our band, traded ideas and stories about leading UU contemporary worship, and in general brightened our weekend.
I delivered the sermon, entitled Old Wine, New Bottles, about the nature and philosophy of contemporary worship.
And here’s a video of Dana and the band doing one of my favorite songs of Dana’s, “Keep the Flame Alive”.
