The Prodigal Son Suite by Keith Green

The Prodigal Son Suite makes me think of four things:
Brad, who used this song at Wynnum high school religious education classes in Brisbane;
Bec, who played and sang this for us one night in the Mordialloc church hall (with the framed print brought from my home for the occasion);
Chris, who is a big Keith Green fan (an understatement); and
God’s grace.

“My son was lost, oh thank you God he’s found,
My son was dead and he’s now alive,
Prepare a feast for my son’s alive,
My son was dead,
My son was lost,
My son’s returned in the hands of God.”

The song is not the reason I own the framed print, though.
That’s Henri Nouwen’s fault.

Pachelbel’s Canon Played On Rubber Chicken

Even those long-suffering string players whose lives are plagued by Pachelbel’s Canon should derive some amusement from this rendition played on the rubber chicken.
The video goes for two minutes, and it’s worth staying through to the end.

Among the seventy or so new emoji that will be released later this year, there is an official one in honour of our town, Mount Gambier.

The emoji people aren’t exactly identifying it as such, but it’s pretty obvious.

Not Just For Cats…

Winter in Mount Gambier is cool.

Cold really.

And not just for cats.

For everyone.
