Yesterday was a celebration for the First Church of Bedford to mark their decision to become an Open & Affirming church. To mark the event, we invited the woman's choral group Voices Rising. They were amazing! They sing so beautifully, and with such passion. My favorite selection was No Turning Back by Pat Humphries. (This link is to an NPR piece where you can hear No Turning Back *and* Swimming to the Other Side, an old favorite of mine.)
My children are two and one, so they were home so as to not totally interrupt the performance. But I can't wait for them to hear this kind of music live. Music that celebrates what ties all of us together, music of love and peace. Amen.
