Most of our UU congregations are beginning their new service year in the next couple of weeks. When you reflect on this song, “We’ll Build a Land,” what is it you hope Unitarian Universalism (and your congregation) will help build in the world? I especially like the new verse in this version:
“We’ll build a land where the forests are fertile
Where the water and wind run clean and clear
And community matters more than positions
Come share this land
Let’s build it right here!”
Note: This song is by Carolyn McDade and is included in the primary Unitarian-Universalist hymnal. However, this version sung by Mo Mack in Concert with John and Cynthia Boeling as a benefit for the First Unitarian church of Portland in 2016 drops two original verses and adds a new one.
As many of you know our lovely “Twinkle” Marie was married on Saturday! Here is the message she posted on Facebook:
“Dreams do come true!! Thank you to everyone who shared in our celebration, whether you were with us in person or sent love from afar, we deeply appreciate your love and support. After our honeymoon we will post more pictures of our wedding weekend!!”
Twinkle & Ed we wish you every good blessing on your life together!
