When singing a song together, we become participants rather than observers of others. Singing gives us an opportunity to make ourselves really and truly present. No one has to be a perfect singer, or have the most beautiful voice, to be a part of a music group. As a well-known quotation reads: “The woods would be very silent if only those birds sang who sing the best.”
Everything is accelerating and fear is ruling the planet. We are afraid of terrorists and climate change; deeply uncertain of the economy, our leaders and what the future holds for our work, our relationships and our communities. What we thought we knew is no longer true. Where are we heading?
