The Promise of Faith

The promise of living with hope and thanksgiving is born of our loving our friends and our labor.

The promise of growing with faith and with knowing is born of our sharing our love with our neighbor.

The promise of loving, the promise of growing is born of our singing in joy and  thanksgiving.

The promise of living,  the promise of growing,the promise of ending is labor and sharing and loving.

From Act I, The Tender Land                               Music by Aaron Copland
Libretto by Horace Everett (Erik Johns)

Evoking the spirit of the iconic Norman Rockwell Thanksgiving scene, these words and this music should inspire every American to live more fully into the promise of their faith as well as their patriotism.  Thanks be to God.

Happy Thanksgiving,
