A Liberal Religious Hallelujah


Noticing my almost obsessive interest in covers of Leonard Cohen’s Hallelujah, a friend sent me this adaptation by Renee Ruchotzke. While I think it loses a bit of the sense of the tragic in the original, a knock, interestingly on liberal religion in general, I think as a didactic, neatly summarizing much of the best of contemporary Unitarian Universalism, it works nicely.

I hope you enjoy it. And, if it leads you to dig further into the possibilities of contemporary liberal religion, so much the better…
