Praying with Fringes 2/5/2014 – that music that has been playing since you were born

Read this poem:

from Gregory Orr

Ask the tree or the house;
Ask the rose or the fire
Hydrant – everything’s
Waiting for you to notice.
Everything’s waiting for you
To wrap your heart around it.

That music has been playing
Since you were born.
You must be mad to resist it.
Always the beloved
Surrounds us,
Eager to dance.
All we have to do is ask

then listen to this song, and you’ll understand the magic that happens at Fringes, where prayers sing and songs pray:
