Finding Hope in a Climate Crisis

April 23, 2023 | 9:00 am & 11:00 am


Today’s Topic:

Trying to find hope in this time of climate crisis can feel daunting and even impossible. Thankfully, many of the scientists and activists closest to the challenges we all face have found ways to live with integrity and joy while making a positive difference. Join us on this Earth Day Sunday when we will explore individual and collective possibilities to live up to our 7th UU Principle and approach the reality of climate change with respect for the interdependent web of existence of which we are all a part.

Matt Meyer is musician, worship leader, and community songleader, as well as a lifelong Unitarian Universalist. He graduated from Berklee College of Music in 2004, where he studied hand drumming and world music. Matt is honored to have performed with Ysaye Barnwell (of Sweet Honey in the Rock), Pete Seeger, Emma’s Revolution, Peter Mayer, Jim Scott, Nick Page, The Halalisa Singers, Samba Tremeterra, and Bloco de Afrobrazil. He serves as the Director of Operations and Community Life for Sanctuary Boston, a contemporary worship community that meets on Wednesday evenings.
