NRL are going to spend the weekend turning Lang Park into a quagmire.
AFL games all have clear favourites. Except for Geelong who will probably manage to lose against Saint Kilda.

(Draws count as correct)
NRL (last round 6/8; season tally 51/72)
Canterbury (What does it say about Newcastle that Canterbury are favourites)
Saint George
North Queensland

AFL (last round 6/9; season tally 48/72)
Port Adelaide

I kept seeing Wendell Berry and his novel Jayber Crow mentioned in various ways, so now I’ve got a copy.

How could I not be attracted to the fictional autobiography of someone who departs from their plan to be a minister to become a barber instead?

Pass The Promise from Getty Music sounded so familiar I thought I’d posted it before.
Maybe I thought it wasn’t congregational enough.
It’s either call and response or close couplets in the verses – either could work and a congregation like ours would probably do the couplet thing.
It’s a similar vocal approach to leading Is He Worthy as a congregational song in that regard.

But it is a very engaging song of shared testimony.

My daughter will think it’s because I gravitate toward anything by Sandra McCracken, and there may be some truth in that.

And Sunday Songs is late enough for this week, if it stretches into Tuesday that’s getting too far.

The lyrics:
I will pray rejoicing from my heart
Pray rejoicing from my heart

For in Him my victory’s lifted high
His salvation is my cry

He has overcome my enemies
Our praises scorn the enemy

I delight in His deliverance
The Lord is our deliverance

Pass the promise
To our sons and daughters
God most high, God our Father
We bear witness

There is no one holy like the Lord
Holy, holy is the Lord

Our Rock and refuge is our God
All the earth belongs to God

Do not speak with pride of noble deeds
The Lord will weigh our every deed

See the strong have lost, the weak have gained
And from the dust my life He raised


He will guard the feet of faithful ones
He will hold His faithful ones

But the wicked they will not prevail
Not by might will man prevail

He is coming soon to judge the earth
He is coming soon to judge the earth

For the Lord gives power to His King
All Strength to His Anointed King

Chorus (X4)

We bear witness
We bear witness
