In the turbulence of the 1960’s, a songwriter penned these words: “In such an ugly time the only true protest is beauty.” It’s hard to deny that our world faces storms once more and many hearts fear cruel, ugly actions. More than a century ago, a wise leader in another uncertain age counseled his fellows to walk in beauty. No matter our circumstances, we may always choose to focus on beauty, on truth, on light. This week we’ll look at the light that calls you to be the change you seek. Join us for a message of hope from songwriter and speaker Doug Benecke and his partner in rhyme, Sallie Spirit.
Doug is a lifelong musician and student of the human spirit. Holding a religion degree from Oberlin College, he works daily as an addictions counselor. Doug and his wife, Sallie, share talks and music at churches all round the Sound.
