I had to get someone else to play the organ for me in church today – cold, laryngitis, fever etc. All is not right with the world when I miss church, but sometimes life gets in the way. Playing the hymns isn’t as important as not sharing the germs.
So, in celebration of Sunday I am giving you this gift. It is an amazing performance by Wintley Phipps, an ordained minister and founder of The Dream Academy to help the children of convicts. He understands history, but draws strength from it to move ahead rather than nurturing past wounds.
Mr. Phipps has performed for Mother Teresa and Nelson Mandela as well as presidents Jimmy Carter, George H. W. Bush, Bill Clinton, and George Bush. Perhaps he will perform for our next president as well.
