Sunday the 27th, the Choir will perform a piece composed by Mark A Miller to words from an anonymous Jewish poem. We will also sing a short work by Doug Bowes. In keeping with the Theme of Grace and the Topic of Everyone Belongs, the short piece is titled “Grace”.
Let all of us around the table remember those who have the least,
And do whatever we are able, that everyone may join the feast.
The longer piece is called “I Believe”. It is not the one made famous in 1953 by Frankie Laine. This one has simpler words.
I believe in the sun even when it’s not shining.
I believe in love even when I don’t feel it.
I believe in God even when God is silent.
We all believe in things, even though the details of our beliefs differ. The one unifying principle in Unitarian Universalism is that everyone belongs. We all have a place at the table. We all have a right and a purpose on this planet. We all need grace.
