Our Mother/Father in Heaven

Our Mother/Father in Heaven is a creative adaptation of a song from Southern Africa, first shared by Liesl Smith at an MMC Holy Week Retreat at St. Lydia's in Brooklyn. Taught through call and echo, the piece invites improvisation and imagination in our language for Divine. 

"Our Mother in heaven,
give us your love
We are knocking at your door
for love, for love and peace."

Alternative text:
Our Father/Sister/Brother...

Here's a video of Liesl sharing the song:
