Event Details

Vespers & All That Jazz is a worship experience using words and music from a variety of sources to encounter the Sacred. We understand jazz to be a process of making music; music which shapes the service and helps us experience the interruptive Spirit of God in ourselves and others. The style is experiential. Open minds, open hearts, and open ears are essential. Justice, compassion, peace, and wonder are hoped-for responses. Join us for a special Vespers & All That Jazz service which honors the life and legacy of Rev. Dr. Martin Luther King, Jr. The service will include excerpts from King's speeches—including one given in Scarritt Bennett's Wightman Chapel in April of 1957—as well as songs from the Civil Rights Movement.
