This Week's Anthem:

Ride On, King Jesus

Ride on, King Jesus 
No man can a-hinder me 
Ride on, King Jesus, ride on. 
No man can a-hinder me 
No man can a-hinder me.

In that great gettin' up morning
 Fare thee well, fare thee well. 
In that great gettin' up morning 
Fare thee well, fare thee well.  

No man can a-hinder me 
No man can a-hinder me 
No man can a-hinder me.

"Ride On, King Jesus" is an African-American spiritual, what was once commonly called a Negro spiritual. Most of the songs in this genre can be traced to enslaved blacks living in the southern United States in the century or so prior to the Civil War. Many of the spirituals contained hidden messages about freedom and veiled references to escape, and are thus called Underground Railroad songs. This one, however, "Ride On, King Jesus," contains a text whose purpose appears to be a strictly spiritual one. The spiritual's melody brims with energy and brightness in its sprightly syncopations and sense of innocence. The melody begins with a fanfare-like vocal statement in the upper ranges ("Ride on, King Jesus; No man can-a-hinder me"), after which the music turns playful and bouncy, delicate and cute, too, in the way the singer softly intones the rhythmic accents of the colorful vocal line. Hardly sounding the product of the pre-Civil War era, this charming song will have strong appeal for both folk song and spirituals enthusiasts.

Join us for the rejuvenating experience that is Spring!  Awaken from your winter sleep with gentle stretching, mindful breathing, yoga asanas, guided meditation and reflection.  We begin the morning with a breath-inspired meditation and then move into a hatha flow yoga class to awaken and energize.  A lunch break allows us to share together as friends.  The last hour brings us the opportunity to re-discover our internal compass as we move into the season of rebirth and renewal with new vitality and an enriched sense of being.
