Musical Performance: Joshua Long

With special guest Martin Camper

Fri 10 AM | Café

What are you searching for? What is spirit saying to you? Do you feel called to be with the least of these? Many are searching for answer questions that tug at their heartstrings, yet those answers may be right in front of you. We all have a mountaintop we are trying to reach. We all have this race called life that we are in some way, shape, or form trying to win. Can you even win at the game of life, or do we just get better at experiencing this profound mysterious gift? When we think about justice, how many times have we reached the mountaintop and have yet to break into the promised land? Singer/songwriter Joshua Long and special guest Martin Camper will perform original music from Long’s albums “All God’s Children,” “All in You,” and his newest project “The Mountain Top.”

Josh’s ministry has led him to the Unitarian Universalist Church of Annapolis, where he serves as the Director of Contemporary Music and Membership Coordinator. Josh is also a student at Wesley Theological, Seminary studying to be an ordained UU minister. He lives in Severn, Maryland, with his wife, Tabitha, and their cat, Calypso.
