Rise Up Singing: A Songbook for Transformation

When Peter and Annie Blood-Patterson first put together the Rise Up Singing Songbook, they had no idea that someday it would sell 1 million copies around the world.

    Great, Peter! Remember me? Remember guys and girls lining up each side of a rope at Friends Lake?
    Remember Russ with the card, “Pride Goes Before a Fall” outside Ann Arbor High?
    And, then, dancing the hora on Saturdays? Would they do that now?
    And I remember seeing Roy Treadway walking into the meetinghouse and finding it was Ray.
    And two teens coming into meeting and sitting next to (what was his name?), the well-dressed Friend, in the front row, stretching their bare feet out into the center. And, afterwards, the three shaking hands with each other. Good memory.

    Wonderful idea to include Annie and Peter in this series! Thanks for reminding us how Spirit is present in the songs and the singing, as well as in the silence between the notes. And thanks, Peter and Annie, for following through with this leading and the mammoth undertaking that Rise Up Singing has required, creating it and getting it out to the world. May the next one, Rise Again, serve to bring even more into the spiritual bonding of communal singing!

    Hi, As a member of the Dorset and S.Wilts AM E&O Facilitators I find this series of videos exteremely useful in helping to explain some of our idiosyncrasies! May they ever increase in number and thanks to all involved.
    In Friendship,
    Howard
