Sunday Service: Living in Covenant

Minister: Rev KC Slack


We wrap our exploration of covenant with a turn towards praxis—the process by which a theory, lesson, or skill is enacted. How do we live together in covenant? What do we do to restore covenant when it is broken?

AN EVENING with STUDEO

 


Join UUVerdugo as we welcome STUDEO, the Grammy-nominated married pop duo from Australia, as they swing through Baja and Alta California on the North American leg of their tour. Jeremy and Christine Stork deliver an entertaining evening or orioginals and covers, including the songs of Travis Dow.

When Jeremy and Christine Stork first joined forces in the late '70s, they had no idea what the future would bring, or that their union (both matrimonial and musical) would evolve into the beautiful, genre-defying mix of melody, vocals, and top-notch production which, as Studeo, ​has led to multiple single-and-EP releases, a record deal, and international acclaim​. 

Doors open at 7 p.m.

__________________________________________________________________________________

Each month UUVerdugo hosts a great selection of L.A.-area musicians, comedians, writers, and storytellers for our curated "Hootenanny in the Hills": The Verdugo HUUT!

This most-ages show (we recommend 12 and up) features all the friendly and familiar aspects of the Greenwich Village "hoots" of the 1960s that introduced the world to Bob Dylan, Phil Ochs, Joan Baez, and Judy Collins, and that have been captured in movies like "Inside Llewyn Davis" and TV's "The Marvelous Mrs. Maisel."

But our HUUT! goes one better: we have low-cost snacks, the occasional Powerpoint presentation, and the best urn-based coffee on either side of the Foothill freeway.

Past shows have included "Your Valentine Is Wrong," "Reassurance And/Or Despair," "Whiskey in the Jar And Other Vices," and "Tape from California." Gracing the stage of our acoustically-lovely 100-seat sanctuary have been Lisa Finnie, Art Stucco, Jon Raymond Fisher, Mitchell Schaffer, Ric Taylor, Carrie Wade, Ben and Lisa Marie Deily (Varsity Drag), Non Duo, Jordan Kurtzman, Julie Perkins, Gabriela Gonzalez, Marisol Barrett, Jan Davidson, Faded Echo, Daily Cry (John Crye and Bill Daly), Fogelfoot, Josh Lewis, Alex Acevedo, Ken Lasaine, Michelle Gardner, Tom Bishel, Marisol Barrett, Carleen Carney, Raspin Stuwart, Phil Ward, Stand Easy, David Kaufman, and Gregory Ivan Smith.
