The Approaching Dawn: OSF Songs that Inspire



When you listen to this 1975 hit by Harold Melvin and the Blue Notes it appears that nothing has changed in 35 years. In many ways that is true as we look around and see all that is wrong in society.

However, there is also much work that is being done under the radar including a rising tide in advocacy and social change. Many of the participants include both male and female feminists, youth from the Joshua or Hip Hop generation, churches and non-religious community organizations.

Thank you, Rev. It's been a rough week here, and that song was just what I needed to hear on my Saturday morning.

Hi Rev,

Very astute and insightful (as awlays); love the song too.

I'll have to contact you on my next trip to Ohio (my grandson and I make an annual trip to Cincinnati for a baseball). If you're in the vicinity, I would be honored to shake your hand.
