In "Riddle and Mystery," a Tapestry of Faith program
Mention that Unitarian Universalists often express our ideas in hymns. Introduce "We'll Build a Land," Hymn 121 in Singing the Living Tradition. Ask if participants think the hymn gives a Unitarian Universalist response to today's Big Question, "Why do bad things happen?" Affirm contributions. Point out, in your own words:
The hymn does not answer the question directly, but says what people will do—what UUs plan to do—to correct some of the bad things caused by people. It says we will build a land, which is free and good, "where justice shall roll down like waters, and peace like an ever flowing stream."
