Rev. Amy Moses-Lagos, BBUUC Minister, presents
“Defying Hate”
With Kris Kines as Worship Associate
Dr. Gary Smart, Accompanist
Dr. Marc Dickman, Guest Musician, Euphonium and Tuba

About our service:

During World War II, two Unitarians, Martha and Waitstill Sharp, worked with the Unitarian Service Committee to help refugees escape Nazi-occupied Europe. This sermon will explore the lessons we can learn from their example as we work to widen the circle of justice and compassion in the world today. 

About our guest musician:

Dr. Marc Dickman is a founding member of the acclaimed Jazz Studies Program at the University of North Florida. His versatility on euphonium, trombone, bass-trombone, and tuba in the classical and jazz styles places him in much demand in the United States.  

Dr. Dickman also has performed in Japan, Finland, Hungary, Paraguay, Uruguay, Canada, Honduras, and Columbia.

He is a founding member of the groundbreaking jazz ensemble, the Modern Jazz Tuba Project. His CD, “A Weaver of Dreams,” is the first jazz euphonium recording to be available through popular services such as iTunes and Real Networks. At UNF he teaches applied low brass and jazz ensemble. His students have won awards in both the jazz and classical areas.
