    There was much about today’s worship that moved me. We observed World Communion Sunday and our meal was accompanied by some amazing music, which is what I want to share tonight. Three women at church covered a song by the Wailin’ Jennys called “One Voice.” I had not heard it before. It is as fine a Communion hymn as any I know. So tonight, I share their words and music — with gratitude.

    One Voice

    This is the sound of one voice
    One spirit, one voice
    The sound of one who makes a choice
    This is the sound of one voice

    This is the sound of voices two
    The sound of me singing with you
    Helping each other to make it through
    This is the sound of voices two

    This is the sound of voices three
    Singing together in harmony
    Surrendering to the mystery
    This is the sound of voices three

    This is the sound of all of us
    Singing with love and the will to trust
    Leave the rest behind it will turn to dust
    This is the sound of all of us

    This is the sound of one voice
    One people, one voice
    A song for every one of us
    This is the sound of one voice
    This is the sound of one voice

    I will write more tomorrow.

    Peace,
    Milton

      Thank you for this, Milton. You always manage to speak truth to my heart somehow. Praying all the book release stuff goes easily and well.
