Sunday, October 14, at 9:15 and 11:00 AM, the Choir will present a Kirby Shaw arrangement of Leonard Cohen’s “Anthem” from the 1992 album The Future. Anthem gives a message of hope in darkness.
The birds they sang at the break of day.
Start again, I heard them say.
Don’t dwell on what has passed away…
Or what is yet to be.
The past is the past and can’t be changed. The future is the future and can’t be seen. But today is here, and if you woke up this morning on the right side of the grass, you have a whole new day before you.
Ring the bells that still can ring!
Forget your perfect offering!
There is a crack, a crack in everything.
That’s how the light gets in.
This last year, since the firestorm that devastated so many lives, has shown that hope lives on. Life goes on. And we’re not done yet.
