Once again, I'm ashamed to admit that I'm posting a non-theology piece.
I generally try to avoid political discussion, but my wide-ranging musical interests just kind of burst forth occasionally. Here's one. This is a great performance by Aretha Franklin from 1970: great range, a well-done rendition of the song, and the usual vibrant performance by Miss Franklin. (For those who grumble about the sometimes nonsense and trivia on Youtube: we need to remind ourselves that even 10 years ago, it would have been literally impossible for anyone in the general public to listen to something like this. Be thankful. Despite all the crud in our lives as a society, we live in a wonderful time).
