Marty Haugen wrote the song Bread for the World in honor of Bread for the World's 35th anniversary in 2009. This tribute was the opening and closing song for the Bread Rising in New Mexico event in October 2014. This was a celebration of Bread's 40th anniversary and 30 years of presence in New Mexico.  A more detailed post (or posts) about the event will following in coming days.  For now, I want to take the opportunity to share these two videos of our ecumenical choir performing the Marty Haugen piece and the traditional hymn Lift Every Voice and Sing. .
