How The Light Gets In
Rev. Jim Magaw

The late singer-songwriter Leonard Cohen wrote about the experience of darkness in profound and creative ways. But, at the heart of many of his songs and poems was a message of hope and perseverance in spite of the hopelessness all around. This service will explore the music and theology of Leonard Cohen.
