THIS SUNDAY MORNING:

And All Shall Be Well

After a series of intense visions Julian of Norwich penned the words “but all shall be well, and all shall be well, and all manner of things shall be well.” Living during the 1300’s she and her contemporaries experienced the devastations of plague, famine, and war. We will be sharing ways that human beings through time have coped with tragedy and loss, and remained resilient and hopeful. Copied, cherished, and rediscovered, her words of hope have resonated with many for nearly 700 years.

“Hearts open, minds awake.
Change us now for heaven’s sake
Leave us not alone in hatred’s wake...

Show us how to love.

Arms open, souls awake.
Rules we made we now must break
With our very own lives at stake...

We must learn to love.

Eyes open, shocked awake.
Much to learn from our mistakes
Draw us closer in our heartache...

Show us how to love.”

UUCLB Choir, directed by Francisco Ruiz Pattee
Performed in early 2020
