Alternate Activity 2: Song — There is More Love Somewhere (5 minutes), Session Speaking of Fair: Speaking of Fair

In "Riddle and Mystery," a Tapestry of Faith program

Materials for Activity

  • Copy(ies) of the Unitarian Universalist hymnbook Singing the Living Tradition
  • Optional: A recording of the song and a music player

Preparation for Activity

  • Decide how best to present the song "There Is More Love Somewhere," Hymn 95 in Singing the Living Tradition—by reading the words aloud, singing together or playing a recording for the group. If you wish, invite a musical volunteer to help lead this activity.

Description of Activity

Remind/tell the group that Unitarian Universalists often express our ideas in hymns. Introduce "There Is More Love Somewhere" in the way you have chosen.

Ask participants to respond to the words. Do they apparently come from somebody who has not had a fair share of love, hope, peace and joy? Explain that the song is a traditional African American hymn which has been sung in connection with actions to win equal civil rights for blacks and other minorities. Music can help bring a community together in its struggles to win justice for all; we can all share the hope that "There Is More Love Somewhere."
