Spirit In Action
Each week, Spirit In Action brings you stories of people living lives of fruitful service, of peace, community, compassion, creative action and progressive efforts. We'll trace the spiritual roots that support and nourish them in their service. Above all, we'll seek out Light, Love and Helping Hands, being shared between our many neighbors on this planet, hoping to inspire and encourage you to sink deep roots and produce sacred fruit in your own life.

Spirit In Action is an hour of interviews with those providing leadership in peace, justice and "good works", interspersed with relevant music.

The theme music is "The Turning of the World" performed by Sara Thomsen (written by Ruth Pellham) and "I Have No Hands But Yours" by Carol Johnson


Sing Out The Vote & MVP (Movement Voter Project) (10/17/2020)


Description
In an effort to support MVP (Movement Voter Project), Annie Patterson & Peter Blood of RiseUpAndSing.org organized 5 on-line benefit concerts to raise funds, consciousness, & energy to Sing Out The Vote. Focusing their concerts on particular "battleground" states & regions, they educated about the issues & organizations involved in the upcoming election, combining edification for the minds & electrifying for the spirits of their listeners. Some of the 5 concerts included music by Si Kahn of FolkVOTE, Pat & Sandy of Emma's Revolution, and Reggie Harris, enriched by commentary from Ann Nugent (Massachusetts organizer with MVP), and LaTosha Brown co-founder of Black Voters Matter.  
All the songs in this program, except the last, are performed by Annie Patterson & Peter Blood of RiseUpAndSing.org as part of their 9/25/20 Sing Out The Vote concert, and the songwriter is noted with each song:
