QUOTE (Noel Paul Stookey) – Dec 30

December 30, 2014

Moving (Peter, Paul and Mary album)

“The union of your spirits, here,
has caused Him to remain
For whenever two or more
of you are gathered in His name
There is love, there is love.”
~ Noel Paul Stookey, The Wedding Song (There is Love)

In honor of Noel Paul Stookey, American folk singer and member of the 1960s folk trio Peter, Paul & Mary, who was born on this day in 1937.  Shortly after he became a Christian, Stookey wrote the Wedding Song (There is Love) to bless the wedding of his fellow band member Peter Yarrow.
