Offering

For the month of January, the recipient of our community outreach offering is the CT Alliance to End Sexual Violence. Their mission is to create communities free of sexual violence and to provide culturally affirming, trauma-informed advocacy, prevention, and intervention services centered on the voices of survivors. The Alliance seeks to create a world in which everyone believes sexual violence is a preventable problem and actively plays a role in ending it.

"I've Got Peace Like a River"

#100 in Singing the Living Tradition

Words and Music: Marvin V. Frey


I've got peace like a river,

I've got peace like a river,

I've got peace like a river in my soul.


I've got peace like a river,

I've got peace like a river,

I've got peace like a river in my soul.


I've got joy like a fountain ...


I've got love like an ocean ...


I've got pain like an arrow ...


I've got tears like the raindrops ...


I've got strength like a mountain ...

May faith in the spirit of life

And hope for the community of earth

And love of the light in each other

Be ours now, and in all the days to come.
