Climate change is a reality. It is not a vague notion of a possible future anymore. It is fires and floods and storms at our doorsteps. How will we be the Church in these difficult, uncertain times? We are struggling with all of you to find those answers. But we know that at times like these, we will need songs to sing. Songs to give us courage. To remind us that we are not alone. To remind us that we are loved, by God, by our neighbors and by strangers and by this incredible nourishing earth. So here’s a song that might help. Written by Hannah and Lenora Rand and recorded by The Many, “Is This How The World Ends” is an expressive, emotional song, that we hope will help us pray and lament and ask for help in these tough times. It is a song for listening, for meditation, for singing together. There are some solo sections and a moving chant at the end for all to join together in praying to God, “Help us love the way you do.” This is the first release from an upcoming EP of songs of lament for the devastation of climate change written by The Many in a year long collaboration with the BTS Center in Maine.
