Today, the First Sunday of Advent, at St Paul's Cathedral we prayed for all sorts and conditions close-by and far away. Then we sang this hymn
Take our fears, then, Lord
and turn them into hopes for life anew:
Fading light and dying season
sing their Glorias to you.

Speak, O God, your Word among us.
Barren lives your presence fill.
Swell our hearts with songs of gladness,
terrors calm, forebodings still.

Let your promised realm of justice
blossom now throughout the earth;
your dominion bring now near us;
we await the saving birth.
Words Dean W. Nelson (b. 1944) * Music TON-Y-BOTEL, Thomas John Williams (1869-1944)

  1. Hola Jay.
    It's Tim from Green Left Infoasis. I have started up a new little site called 'Feet Meet Fire'. It is dedicated to linking to news, views, and info about pushing Obama to the 'Left' and demanding that his administration makes good on his rhetoric and promises of 'change'. Link to it if you would be so kind and drop by for a comment. It can be found at
    Cheers! Keep up the great work.
