   Inspirational Reading:
   “This is one of the golden gifts of the people who are Co-workers with God: the ability to listen to others.
   When people are in trouble, they don’t need to hear how smart you are.
   They don’t need all kinds of words of wisdom. The greatest wisdom and the greatest love you can show
   someone else is simply to listen when they’re in very bad trouble."

   Sri Harold Klemp, spiritual leader of Eckankar The Slow Burning Love of God,
   Mahanta Transcripts Book 163, Pg. 127

Statewide Community HU Songs

What is the Community HU Song - You have the potential for greater happiness, love, and understanding. Singing HU can bring these to you—through the Light and Sound of God.
Throughout the ages, followers of many spiritual traditions have used prayer, the singing of holy words, and meditation to bring themselves closer to God. In the same way, those who have discovered HU, an ancient name for God, sing it for their spiritual upliftment.
Regardless of your beliefs or religion, you can sing HU to become happier and more secure in God’s love.
You are invited to join us at any of the following Community HU songs to experience this love song to God.
Spiritual Importance of the HU Song: It is a love song to God that brings harmony with life.
Length of Time: About 20-30 minutes
