THANK GOD SPEECH
The following are remarks made by Karen
Soroca at the Unity Church of Marin, Novato, California, on May 23rd,
2004. That day, the service celebrated creativity and featured a live
performance of "Thank God for a Wonderful World" by the Praise Team of the
Good morning everyone. My name is Karen
Soroca and I write in the songwriting team of SOROCA & ALLOCCA. My
friend Janet Marie and I have known each other for 25 years. I
believe that in life the things we love to do bring us the people we
love and it was the love of dance that brought us together. We always
joked about how great our maiden names sounded together – SOROCA &
ALLOCCA – catchy, and we always knew that we’d end up doing something
together. Then around 5 years ago, Janet approached me to help her
with a song she had written. So, I flew down to LA, where she lives
and where I used to live, and that was the beginning of our
collaboration. We’ve been working together ever since. In fact, this
praise song, THANK GOD FOR A WONDERFUL WORLD, is the second song we
ever wrote together.
Now, I believe that all my songs come
through me and are not created by me alone. CREATIVITY – we all have
it within us to create or as I believe co-create. My experience tells
me that when you follow your heart, you let Spirit come through you
and you co-create. This creates right livelihood. This is what I do
with my music. I never feel that I am writing alone.
We all have special
talents, gifts, and abilities and when we tune into this higher
consciousness, the best, creative things pour out of us. It can
be through a song, a poem, a dance, a painting or the creation of a
beautiful garden. It can also be something quite simple.
Every day we create or co-create in our daily lives. So, from my
experience, creativity has to do with coming from a really deep place,
and trusting our higher selves and Spirit.
