music with our children. Singing together in community is one of the most
profoundly important expressions of spirituality that we can offer one another,
and the songs in this book touch the core of our UU [Unitarian Universalist] Principles, bringing them to
life. It is a great honor to be included in this very special publication."

imagine leading a multigenerational event without it! With arrangements as
playable as the songs are singable, Come Sing a Song with Me fills a
longstanding void in Unitarian Universalist worship resources. This collection
of old standbys and new favorites is destined to be found wherever UUs—young
and old, gather together to lift their voices in song."

are excellent and help people to learn more about how song helps us 'pray
