Our mission statement concludes with the aspirational words: “Transforming ourselves and the world.” The choir just sang “Now is the time for change.” And across the political spectrum, the status quo is seen as something that needs molding, revolutionizing, or reforming. So how does it work? What theories of social and cultural change seem most relevant today? Where do we start? And what do we make of the inevitable backlash? The choir will support our journey singing “Keep Your Lamps Trimmed and Burning” and reminding us of the Zulu concept of “Ubuntu” (I am because we are).
