Shelter Neck Inter-Generational Weekend Makes Music
from "The Tar Heel Universalist"
editor: Barbara Kornegay
Shelter Neck hosted about 54 people (including 9 children and 6 teens)
the weekend of March 29-30, 2003 with the theme of "Music Inspiring Unitarian
Universalism". The children rehearsed songs,
and made percussion instruments
, as well as kings' crowns and angel wings, all under the direction of
Cynthia Wade of UUFR. Camp staff had to deal with a problem well-pump, so
adult activites were unsupervised
The children and youth presented a talent show Saturday night
, featuring jokes, poems, several solo performances, and lots of sing-a-longs.
included performances by the Children's Choir and the Women's Choral
Group. Rev. Brian Clougherty told a story about a young woman whose mental
limitations caused a very clumsy gait. But when music played, she could walk
well and even dance gracefully. Brian's sermon reflected on the power of
music, stories and symbols to bring a wholeness that transcends brokenness.
