Deepening. The UUFC’s theme for the year lies in a single word, but this word holds a multitude of meanings. Deepening can mean strengthening, simplifying, purifying, loving, taking a stand…the interpretations are endless. The piano music for the year will have various interpretations of deepening, but today’s selections are quite literal; all of the pieces played today have the words “deep “ or “deeply” in their titles.
Savage Garden was one of the many boy bands hailing from about twenty-five years ago. As a child of the nineties, I always felt drawn to this Australian duo because of the strong keyboard presence in so many of their works, including “Truly Madly Deeply”, this morning’s prelude. Some of the lyrics seem tailor-made for our new church year:
A reason for living. A deeper meaning.
May we strive for deepening in all the facets of our lives. Welcome to a new church year!
