"WE GATHER TOGETHER"
Singing Grace before Meals
Words by Philemon Sturges
Posted in memory of Philemon Sturges (1929 - 2005),
an elder in the Epic of Evolution movement
who renamed The Big Bang: "The Great Radiance"
Traditional hymn melody "We Gather Together"
Philemon Sturges welcomes Michael Dowd and Connie Barlow
to the feast he has prepared at his home in Massachusetts (November 2003)
* * * * *
We gather together to feast and be joyful
Earth's bounty is precious for we are all one
So eat with Thanksgiving; this food was once all living
Sing praises to the life that becomes now your own
