Washer Of Feet by Liturgical Folk

Washer Of Feet is Liturgical Folk’s song based on the collect for Maundy Thursday from the Book of Common Prayer:
Almighty Father, whose dear Son, on the night before he suffered, instituted the Sacrament of his Body and Blood: Mercifully grant that we may receive it thankfully in remembrance of Jesus Christ our Lord, who in these holy mysteries gives us a pledge of eternal life; and who now lives and reigns with you and the Holy Spirit, one God, for ever and ever. Amen.

Why? by Michael Card and John Michael Talbot

The Wednesday before Easter is thought to be the day on which Judas made his agreement to betray Jesus.
I don’t know if that’s exactly true, but the bargain had to made some time or another.

The song ‘Why?’ explores the themes relating to part of Jesus’ sacrifice involving the betrayal of a friend.
This rendition by Michael Card joined by John Michael Talbot is from a favourite album of mine.

Another Trip Home

My friend seemed slightly confused that I was happy to be dropped at the airport early and wait. It just seems closer to home.

I enjoy the moment of anxiety reduction that occurs when the buckle clicks and I know there’s only a two hour flight and a five hour drive and then I’ll be home.

All Some Kind Of Dream by Josh Ritter

All Some Kind Of Dream by Josh Ritter (with Jason Isbell on guitar) from the soon to be released Fever Breaks.
A contemporary expression of an old-fashioned social justice folk song.
Some lament, some hope, pointed yet irenic.
