Now is the Needed Time...The Archbishop and Eric Bibb

The Archbishop has preached a sermon at General Synod on Sunday, July 6th, that is widely seen as a gift to us all. In it the ABC asks "where would Jesus be." You can read it HERE.

It reminds me of Eric Bibb singing Needed Time. Here he is.





When we get back to work, perhaps remembering that Jesus is with whoever asks to have him there, or who needs a friend in (how shall we say) high places. As Eric says at the end, "bless us." It reminds me of a liturgical change I'd love to see - in response to the salutation, "The Lord be with You," the response should be, "And also with them!"

    don't quite know what to make of how they ignored the bass player, even during his solo.

    Blessings.
