All day yesterday this little song from Scripture Scouts kept coming into my mind now that we’re not able to gather publicly. I never could have imagined these circumstances when Marvin Payne and I wrote this in the 80s. We wanted to share it with you and your families. May we all find joy in learning the Gospel together at home!

 

(The growly voice and barks are Boo-dog, the extraordinary basset hound, played by Marvin Payne: )

We Are the Church

We are the church, you and me.

We are part of a family.

We are the church that the world will see.

We are Jesus’ family.

 

(Spoken) We have chapels, quiet halls,

lovely steeples, windows, walls.

What if it all should disappear?

The church is people and we’re still here!

 

We are the church, you and me.

We are part of a family.

We are the church that the world will see.

We are Jesus’ family.
