I am sick at heart
This was the responsive reading, inspired by the hymn "Comfort Me" *,
for the service with the sermon
We have four auxiliary pages for that service, in this order:
* "Comfort Me", lyrics and music copyright by Mimi Bornstein, Hymn #1002 in the UU hymnal "Singing the Journey". Lyrics reprinted with permission:
Comfort me, oh my soul
Reading written by Ted Pack, who notes:
The hymn is bald without the music and the repetition; each verse repeats the first phrase ("Comfort me", "Sing with me", etc.) three times, then "oh my soul". The phrase "Speak for me" is the strongest, simplest and most eloquent call to act for social justice that I've ever heard.
This is one of a series of homilies I wrote for the Unitarian Universalist Fellowship of Stanislaus County, in Modesto, California, from 2003 - 2014.
