Love is the doctrine of this church,” reads the hymnal, “and service is its prayer.” This doctrine understands that “thoughts and prayers,” which our political leaders are so quick to offer in times of tragedy, don’t mean much when they only stay at the level of words and intentions. Many prayers can only be answered, or even offered, with actions. The Great Big Thing relies on human hands!

Those who make the raw materials for our society, who pick our fruit, who clean up, who take away the garbage, who chop up the meat, or cook it or serve it are usually on the very bottom rungs of the wealth ladder. So too, incredibly, those who care for our elders and who teach the next generation. It shouldn’t be that way. Today we will gratefully honor all who do the hard work of the world. We’ll also sing some great anthems.
