All That We Need

Description

Material created by Amana Udis-Kessler for liberal and progressive churches to use during the COVID-19 epidemic, free of charge and with no licensing concerns. A song that might be used for centering music in worship, All That We Need is about people choosing beauty, love, and kindness during the pandemic.
Thiese lyrics outright address America's reckoning with racism, effects of the virus, landlords collecting fees, and citizens writing to their senators. At the same time, it reveals that despite the pandemic, love and kindness continue to prevail.
