New Birth

By January 2, 2022 No Comments
The focus this morning was on a poem by Paul Dupuis called “Tears.” We began by watching a worship video from a conference in Brazil where the singers led with the song “Exalt the Lord our God.” Next, Peter Fitch read several passages of Scripture that connected with ideas in Paul’s poem. After that, Paul introduced the  poem and read it. This was followed by discussion and prayers, and then we watched two videos of the same song, “One Day“, by Matisyahu. The first is one we used fairly often through pandemic services. The second is from Koolulam, a group that creates social initiative gatherings with music. Both are beautiful, but the second seems miraculous as it brings together 3,000 Jews and Muslims to sing Matisyahu’s song, crying out for the end of all violence and war. Peter explained that he thought this could be a symbol or icon of the need for the world to be reborn.
