When my local congregation organized a prayer service for the eve of elections in November 2016, we knew the crowd who gathered would bring diverse views and a mix of anxieties. What everyone needed were words of encouragement, hope, and unity.
I wrote this little arrangement for the election eve prayer service, borrowing words from 2 familiar hymns. Sometimes we just need to hear things in fresh ways so that the words really hit home. And these words seem like the kind of reminder we might need from time to time.
I hope you enjoy the medley. It’s ok to tap your toes and sing along.
