Woven in a Single Garment of Destiny: UUA Worship Service

In our Sanctuary & on Zoom: Margy Young helped us watch a UUA worship service on our screen. We had hoped to show this year’s worship from the 2022 General Assembly but couldn’t since it aired 12:30 EST from Portland Oregon so put together this alternative that celebrates hallmarks of our UU theology. We experienced a different type of worship, including homilies on connection and covenant with Rev. Susan Frederick-Gray, UUA President.

Watch the recording of it here:

Hymn:  Just as Long as I Have Breath    video

Just as long as I have breath, I must answer, “Yes,” to life; though with pain I made my way, still with hope I meet each

day. If they ask what I did well, tell them I said, “Yes,” to life.

Just as long as vision lasts, I must answer, “Yes,” to truth; in my dream and in my dark, always that elusive spark. If they ask what I did well, tell them I said, “Yes,” to truth.

Mientras lata el corazón, debo decir “Sí” al amor; me dolió la decepción, y aún así te dí el perdón. Si preguntan qué hice bien, diles: Dijo “Sí” al amor.

Just as long as my heart beats, I must answer, “Yes,” to love; disappointment pierced me through, still I kept on loving you. If they ask what I did best, tell them I said, “Yes,” to love.
