This is a covenanted group. Our conversations, which may be quite personal, are to be kept confidential, and attendance at all sessions is expected. Though Rev. Julia has led groups for several hospice organizations, you do not have to have had a recent bereavement to find this helpful and healing.
Our faith tradition encourages us to lead examined lives, which includes facing the pain we each carry with courage and open hearts. We will bear witness to each other’s stories, as we discover anew how to weave our losses into a larger, more hopeful narrative.
The group will be limited to a maximum of eight people. If you have already spoken informally with Rev. Julia about this, please contact her right away to confirm your participation. To find out more about the nature of the group and to sign up, contact Rev. Julia in person or at:

Hypnotically interweaving storytelling, laughter, exotic instruments and his distinctive voice, Granger’s unique sound and energy have been featured in film, at National Monuments, Sundance Film Festival, International Native American and World Flute Festival, Santa Fe Indian Market and The Gathering of Nations. He has collaborated with R. Carlos Nakai, Coyote Oldman, and Peter Phippen. His music can be heard on Music from the Hearts of Space, Sirius, other stations worldwide. NPR’s All Things Considered profiled Granger and his rare Hang in a feature called Like Water Over Bells, and New Mexico Magazine calls Granger’s music, “Richly layered with the sounds of a variety of flutes and percussion instruments…[offering] more depth than some flute solo recordings you might find.”
A Las Cruces resident, Granger has composed for multi-media art shows and the NMSU Dance Department. Awards include the Indian Summer Music Award, New Mexico Music Industry Awards and two Native American Music Awards nominations. A 2012 project, Strong Medicine: Love in Cancer, reflects his ongoing commitment to providing soothing music to hospice patients.
Join us on a spirit renewing magical journey with Randy Granger when award winning composer and recording artist Randy Granger returns to UUWC Sunday, July 26th at 11am.
