I'll be singing and playing this song tomorrow at my church for Saturday afternoon worship. Our teacher this weekend Ric requested this song and I will oblige. Blessings to you Celia and to all who read this post.

Beautiful, thank you for sharing.

On the funny side, a few years ago found some old family photos. One leg of ancestors lived in southern Iowa. One photo of five brothers was marked the mormon brothers, Semple family. Got excited I could go to a Mormon library and find all kinds of genealogy. Well the five brothers lived near the Mormon trail, but never were mormon. Lol, Scots-Irish with lots of dead ends and hard to trace.

Tis the season and joy you are bringing!

We need as much as possible to keep us through the battles ahead, because anyone who thinks things have stopped or moved on is not facing reality, as they will never stop.

Maybe the name changed because they finally realized Mormons are not Christians.

It reminds me of the orchestra on the Titanic playing while the ship was going down. We need to get serious about EVERYONE'S suffering and predicament on the Planet, especially those of the children--as Catholics fail the Holy Land as well:

Russell M. Nelson doesn't like pomegranates. "Mormon" means pomegranate as an adjective and locative.

A Beautiful chant by the choir for sure ..Thanks Celia.

It hasn't moved me to wear magic underwear but, it did make me think of The Cowboy Junkies singing Richie Havens' Handouts In The Rain.
