Note that we had to remove all music before posting because of licensing restrictions. Listen here to John Denver’s song which inspired the series theme, ‘All This Joy, All This Sorrow’, and here to Rev. Dr. Kelle Brown’s solo performance with the Seattle Peace Chorus Fall concert, played on November 13th. A big shout out and thank you to Jeff Roberts, series producer, for getting the recordings ready to post.

This speaker series was supported by a generous $5,000 donation from Don and Brenda Mallett who invited others to consider making a gift of your own to the Bob Fitzgerald Speaker Fund supporting The Lecture Series at University UCC, Seattle.

We are saddened to announce the passing of Don Mallett on November 17th. Don was a long time UCUCC member, Lecture Series volunteer and supporter, mentor and friend. Don and his wife Brenda provided a $5000 challenge grant to The Lecture Series to encourage others to give. ‘Why wait till I’m not here?’ said Don is his always pragmatic, humorous way. Don helped create and guide Lecture Series programming over many years and his wise counsel will be missed, but never forgotten. Our condolences go to Brenda and the Mallett family.
