Brian McClaren calls Rev. Sherry Cothran a “rare combination…an artistic/spiritual trifecta, a first rate singer/songwriter, a dynamic performer and a trained theologian.” Leaving a career as an award winning recording artist for Mercury Records, NY to pursue a spiritual journey, Ms.

Cothran, M.Div., ordained minister, combines songs and stories rooted in ancient traditions, theology, myth and her ongoing work as senior pastor/wounded healer to the marginalized populations in her urban community. She fuses her gifts of writing, teaching, preaching, singing, songwriting and workshop presentations as well as her empathic counseling to help others unpack and embrace their own transformative Soul restoring, “wounded healer” power. Ms. Cothran has been featured in USA Today, UMC.org, led at Festival of Homiletics, was the Artist in Residence, 2015, at Louisville Presbyterian Seminary. Her sermons and blogs have been featured in Good Preacher, Abingdon Women, The Interpreter, Ministry Matters, Alive Now. Ms. Cothran has been the keynote speaker at nationwide conferences, retreats and workshops and is a regularly booked performer/speaker/workshop leader.

Mr. Neilson is a story teller who weaves an autobiographical sketch from his dairy farm roots to the Vietnam War, civil rights, liberation struggles in Central America and East Africa, border crossings, pipelines, guns, breastfeeding, parenting, sexuality, reproduction, humanism, lost loves and more.
His work has resulted in his winning several music awards that includes two Song Of the Year Awards from Independent Musicians and a 2015 nomination for the United Nations Nelson Mandela Award for lifetime achievement in peace and justice. In 2017 he received the Arab American Women Association Award for Global Education Through Performance Art.
