Keeping the Faith

It's a hunch that there is something
bigger connecting it all...

connecting us all together.
And that feeling, that hunch, is God.
And coming here tonight,
on your Sunday evening...

to connect with that feeling,
that is an act of faith.

And so all I have to do is look around
the room at this packed church...

to know that we're doing pretty well
as a community.

Even if all of you
failed my pop quiz miserably.

Let us pray.
Jake and I used to talk about how we
needed to kick the dust off our faiths,
bring 'em up to speed with the times.

No more of the old routines.
Jake said, "We're gonna give 'em
an old-world God with a new-age spin."

Feel the prana.
Our first big idea was to turn
this abandoned gay disco...

into a joint Catholic-Jewish
senior centre-slash-karaoke lounge.

You know, sort of a Fiddler on the Roof
meets Lord of the Dance...

meets Buena Vista Social Club.
Not an easy idea to sell
to some of the higher-ups...

but that's what we lived for--
to push the envelope.

You know, we were gonna bring our
religions into the 21 st century
any way we could.

We were gonna shove 'em a little,
if we had to.

Jake said we were gonna be like those
young cops who come on the force
and shake things up.

You know-- the God Squad.
Well, it's just like the ocean
under the moon

Well, it's the same as the emotion
that I have for you

You got the kind of lovin'
that can be so true, yeah

So give me your heart
Make it real

Or else forget about it
Or else forget about it
