“Do Be Do Be Do” Rev. Tony Larsen

Is it more important to BE a certain kind of person? (And then the right doing will follow?)

Or is it more important to DO the right thing? (And then the right being will follow?)

It’s based on the saying:

“To do is to be.”    -Socrates

“To be is to do.”    -Plato

“Do be do be do.” –Sinatra

Special music by Ginny Chiaverina, Linda Block and Janet Jensen.
