This one is based on something my pastor said when our congregation was in deep sorrow at the passing of our minister of music. Bill Roper had served as minister of music for 32 years, and many of us didn’t know the church without him. At the same time, the congregation was preparing for a move into a new sanctuary. At some point during our collective grief and anticipation, our pastor, Jay Wolf, said to the congregation, “God didn’t bring us this far to drop us like a rock.”I was comforted by that line, always remembered it, and I remembered it again as I created this version. Especially fitting, given my use of rocks.
