Dan Schatz Obit: Pete Seeger (1919-2014) (220* d) RE: Obit: Pete Seeger (1919-2014) 29 Jan 14


That comment about the rest of us still singing has me crying over again.

The outpouring isn't limited to us intense folkie types. I've been asked many times by members of my congregation how we would honor Pete in our service this week, and I've been fielding calls and e-mails from lots of ministerial colleagues on what Pete Seeger songs might fit in with whatever their service topics are for the week. Since Pete was a Unitarian Universalist, at our congregation we decided to get everyone singing "Turn, Turn, Turn" (we'll line it out, just like he did), and in March we'll do a whole service dedicated to him.

Silver, one of the things that made Pete special was that he always answered letters. Sometimes not for months or a year, but he always answered them.
