JOYS and SORROWS & COFFEE HOUR
Sunday, April 19th – 11:30 am (on Zoom)
Following the regular time slot for our 10:30 Sunday morning service, we will hold a “Joys and Sorrows” online check-in, where everyone has a chance to share our worries and sorrows, as well as our joys and sources of happiness, without questions or discussion. This will be followed by a “Coffee Hour” when we can ask questions, and delve deeper into conversation, if we choose. Join us at 11:30 am by clicking the link which was emailed to you yesterday by our Fellowship Office Administrator. Instructions on how to join a Zoom gathering are available here.

Prelude “For the Beauty of the Earth” The Cambridge Singers
Introduction and Welcome
Hymn: “Fuente de Amor/Spirit of Life” All Souls Unitarian DC Zoom Choir
Fuente de Amor, ven hacia mí.
Y al corazón, cántale tu compasión.
Sopla al volar, sube en la mar,
hasta moldear la justicia de la vida.
Fuente de Amor, ven a mí, ven a mí.
Spirit of Life, come unto me.
Sing in my heart all the stirrings of compassion.
Blow in the wind, rise in the sea;
Move in the hand, giving life the shape of justice.
Roots hold me close; wings set me free;
Spirit of Life, come to me, come to me.
