CALL TO RETURN TO OUR SOULS    —a poemin daddy’s arms”  by Folami Abiade for Father’s Day

Leader:        in daddy’s arms i am tall
& close to the sun & warm
People:       In daddy’s arms
i can see over the fence out back
Leader:        i can touch the bottom leaves of the big magnolia tree
in cousin Sulkie’s yard
People:       in my daddy’s arms the moon is close
closer at night time when i can almost touch it
when it grins back at me from the wide twinkling skies
Leader:        in daddy’s arms i am tall
taller than Benny & my friends Ade & George
taller than Uncle Billy
People:       & best of all
i am eye-ball-even-steven with my big brother Jamal
Leader:        in my daddy’s arms
I am strong & dark like him & laughing
happier than the circus clowns
People:       with red painted grins
when daddy spins me round & round
Leader:        & when the whole world is crazy upside down
i am big and strong & proud like him
People:       in daddy’s arms
my daddy.

HYMN:   This Is My Father’s World  GTG370

We all live in the same house, we all must be part of the effort to hold down our little house.  When you see something that is not right, not fair, not just, do something about it. Say something. Have the courage. Have the backbone. You must be bold and brave, courageous and find a way to get in the way. Walk with the wind. It’s all going to work out. Let it be so. Let it be soon.  Amen.                                      —John Lewis
