Sunday Afternoon Music Video: Isaiah 49
This one, beloved of my children at bedtime from when they were very tiny, has been around since the 1970s. As a college student searching for maternal images for God I was delighted to discover it, and the holy card with a strong and gentle hand cradling a child's face. (Can't find on the web, sadly, and don't have a copy to scan). And the original title with scripture reference led me to a passage from Isaiah that has played a major part in my spiritual journey.
Why today? Because, on Trinity Sunday, I am anticipating that--unlike many RevGals--my dear, old, Anglo-Catholic rector is going to Father us to death! So, since I can't preach on my favorite trinitarian formulations: Mother, Christ and Holy Spirit, and Lover, Beloved, and Love, I am going for a little musical balance here by sharing a song that means a lot to me.
What did you sing in worship today?
