How Can I Keep From Singing Podcast - Episode #3


Episode #3 is about “Trusting.” After a month away from podcasting, Susan shares what has been going on that has kept her from the microphone – in fact, today, she podcasts from her car, proving there’s always a way to get around obstacles! Stories include an update on the job front for her husband, Rich, and a sad, but inevitable turn regarding her elderly mother’s health. And, she shares a simple prayer that has been a foundation of strength in her life. She ends the podcast with a special musical tribute to her mom.


Prayer: The Jesus Prayer: “Lord Jesus Christ, Son of God, have mercy on me, a sinner.”

Music: “Spirit of Life” written and composed by Carolyn McDade (hymn #123 in the Unitarian Universalist hymnal, Singing the Living Tradition), performed by Susan Bailey.
