We had a great service at church today. Yes, fellow bloggers, ol’ non-believing Lucy goes to church. Every Sunday. I’m even a Sunday school teacher. Believe it or not.
Anyways as I was sayin’, or writing actually, the service today was wonderful. Stirring. It was back-to-church Sunday, like that. Start of the new church year.
We ended by singing Lean on Me. Of course, you need to remember that we are Unitarians. Unitarians can sing whatever they want to in church. We don’t even have to go to church. God trusts us. Some people need to attend church regularly so that they can be told to shape up, and that God is watching them, and stuff like that. Maybe threatened, and so on. I’m an atheist so I don’t need the promise of heaven, or the threat of hell. I just try to be a good person for the hell of it. Works for me, and of course everyone else does what works for them, and that’s what you call a Good Thing.
Anyway, I’m all in a good mood now because of the service and also because of this song. Lean On Me
“Sometime in our lives we all have pain, we all have sorrow
But if we are wise we know that there’s always tomorrow.
Lean on me when you’re not strong and I’ll be your friend,
I’ll help you carry on,
For it won’t be long ‘til I’m gonna need somebody to lean on.”
‘Course there’s more to the song, and if you remember the tune to this one, you could sing along. But I know from my last post and the comments on it, that most of you are NOT singing along. Too bad. I was gonna put out a CD called the “Singing Bloggers.”
So little cooperation.
It was kinda pitiful that way. Just pitiful.
