Our lives are filled with wonder, if only we open ourselves to it. How can we learn to pay attention to the countless gifts of the spirit? Join Rev. Schatz for a service featuring his original thoughts and songs on this topic.
Rev. Dan Schatz, Minister of Buxmont Unitarian Universalist Fellowship, is a lifelong Unitarian Universalist who grew up at the Cedar Lane Unitarian Church in Bethesda, Maryland. A graduate of Harvard Divinity School, Dan previously served as Director of a Youth Job Corps program in Maine, hospital chaplain in Virginia, hospice chaplain in New Hampshire, college instructor in Comparative Religion, and Minister of the Unitarian Universalist Fellowship of the Eastern Slopes in Tamworth, New Hampshire, where he was ordained in 2001.
As a respected folk musician, singer, songwriter and multi-instrumentalist Dam combines his deep roots in traditional music with a strong sense of community and social justice. His work as creator and producer of the internationally acclaimed Singing Through the Hard Times – a Tribute to Utah Phillips, which features Dan along with such respected musicians as Pete Seeger, Ani DiFranco and Emmylou Harris, earned him a 2010 GRAMMY nomination in the Best Traditional Folk category. His most recent CD, The Song and the Sigh, combines Dan’s music with a hardcover book of reflections and thoughts.
