The Youth Choir of University United Methodist Church, Chapel Hill, North Carolina will perform the Cotton Patch Gospel at St Stephen’s this coming Monday at 7.30pm.
The young people from Carolina are staying with members of the congregation during the 2 days they are in Inverness.
Cotton Patch Gospel is an amazing telling of the story of Jesus’ life, as if he lived in the Southeastern USA, with the lively blue grass style music of Harry Chapin.
Harry Forster Chapin (December 7, 1942 – July 16, 1981) was an American singer-songwriter best known for his folk rock songs including “Taxi,” “WOL*D,” “Sniper”, “Flowers Are Red,” and the No. 1 hit “Cat’s in the Cradle.” Chapin was also a dedicated humanitarian who fought to end world hunger; he was a key participant in the creation of the Presidential Commission on World Hunger in 1977. In 1987, Chapin was posthumously awarded the Congressional Gold Medal for his humanitarian work (Wikipedia).
