Only Music Keeps Us Here (10-09-16 Sermon)

There are a thousand little things
each day, if we but notice, to sing about –
because living in this ever-expanding universe
and living into those simple moments of the miraculous
called out a song from our ancestors
and made them want to sing, too –
their own song and the songs of their people –
to join hands and travel together
to over and over again
by each tiny act of compassion
and each brief moment of beauty
and each simple word of hope
flip the world
by flipping us, heart by heart,
because none of us can tell if tomorrow will be that day
where hope and history rhyme.

– Rev. Luke Stevens-Royer, “Only Music Keeps Us Here”
