Where two or three are gathered in my name, there I am in the midst of them (Matt. 18:19-20)

 In our heart of hearts, we know that we need one another. We know this, especially through the autumns and winters of our own lives. We also know how to celebrate together in the spring when optimism and hope emerge once again.

Song performers ‘The Scattered People’ (a collective of asylum seekers, refugees and kindred-spirited local Australian musicians) know this too. For their autumns and winters have been oppressive and bitter. They long for spring, as we all do.

’Need One Another’ draws on a gospel/blues melodic tradition but is sufficiently elastic in its simplicity to accommodate alternative arrangements e.g .’The Sweet Freedom Singers’ (a distant cousin of the ‘Choir of Hard Knocks’) hasten the pace in their version, rock up the guitars and invite the uninhibited to dance the dance.

The context for its use is expansive. The song is, after all, an anthem. It slips comfortably into religious celebrations. It reinforces the consciousness of students – young and old into a recognition that our lives are enriched via close connections with one another. It transcends differences within systems of belief for it focuses on the absolute core of our humanity.
