Scores Included in pdf file: Lead Sheet for Vocalist and Improvisational Musicians who work from a Chord Chart

This song was written for my last sermon while on staff at Light of Christ United Methodist Church in Charlotte, NC in 2003. I learned much from the congregation's emphasis on evangelism and their sensitivity to persons who, though spiritual seekers, were uncomfortable with traditional church behavior and language. The biblical text is very important to the construct of the lyrics. This song explores what it feels like to be on the outside looking in. The Syrophonecian woman just wanted crumbs from the table of Jesus and his disciples. The newcomer to church feels like a stranger looking in, finds customs and traditions strange and wonders if it is possible to fit in.

This lead sheet is designed for use by improvisational musicians.

Parts heard on the instrumental demo recording can be solicited from the composer
