Worship Service for August 2, 2020

Join us for our worship service for Sunday, August 2, 2020, which you can view on YouTube:

Here are the lyrics to the two hymns:

We Laugh, We Cry

    We laugh, we cry, we live, we die; we dance, we sing our song.

    We need to feel there’s something here to which we can belong.

    We need to feel the freedom just to have some time alone.

    But most of all we need close friends we can call our very own.

    And we believe in life, and in the strength of love;

    and we have found a need to be together.

    We have our hearts to give, we have our thoughts to receive;

    and we believe that sharing is an answer.

    A child is born among us and we feel a special glow.

    We see time’s endless journey as we watch the baby grow.

    We thrill to hear imagination freely running wild.

    We dedicate our minds and heart to the spirit of this child.

    And we believe in life, and in the strength of love;

    and we have found a time to be together.

    And with the grace of age, we share the wonder of youth,

    and we believe that growing is an answer.

    Our lives are full of wonder and our time is very brief.

    The death of one among us fills us all with pain and grief.

    But as we live, so shall we die, and when our lives are done

    the memories we shared with friends, they will linger on and on.

    And we believe in life, and in the strength of love;

    and we have found a place to be together.

    We have the right to grow, we have the gift to believe

    that peace within our living is an answer.

    We seek elusive answers to the questions of this life.

    We seek to put an end to all the waste of human strife.

    We search for truth, equality, and blessed peace of mind.

    And then, we come together here, to make sense of what we find.

    And we believe in life, and in the strength of love,

    and we have found a joy being together.

    And in our search for peace, maybe we’ll finally see:

    even to question, truly is an answer.

Love Will Guide Us

Love will guide us, peace has tried us,

Hope inside us, will lead the way

On the road from greed to giving.

Love will guide us through the hard night.

If you cannot speak like angels,

If you cannot speak before thousands,                                   

You can give from deep within you.

You can change the world with your love.

(Repeat first verse.)
