Alternate Activity 2: Song — "From You I Receive" (10 minutes), Session 10: The Power of Passion

In "Sing to the Power," a Tapestry of Faith program

Materials for Activity

  • Singing the Living Tradition, the Unitarian Universalist hymnbook

Preparation for Activity

  • Learn "From You I Receive," Hymn 402 in Singing the Living Tradition.
  • Optional: Recruit a song leader for this activity.

Description of Activity

The song "From You I Receive," by Joseph and Nathan Segal, is a perfect expression of the experience of giving. If your group will be involved in asking the congregation to contribute to a Sunday morning offering, half of which will go to an organization of your group's choosing, this activity prepares the group to lead the congregation in singing, as part of that worship service.

Teach the song by singing the first line and having the group sing it back to you, then doing the same with the second line. Sing the song several times through, until the group is completely secure with it. Then you might wish to try singing it as a round, with the second group starting when the first group has reached the end of the first line.
