This Week on the Internet

The first Sunday in Lent has been designated Episcopal Relief and Development Sunday and Lent is presented to us as a challenge to give up some of what we have so that others in the world do not live in poverty.

 

"If you offer your food to the hungry and satisfy the needs of the afflicted, your light will rise in the darkness and your gloom will be like the noonday; you will be called repairer of the breach and restorer of streets to live in." --Isaiah 58:10 and 58:12b


This Week on the Internet

 

Lift Every Voice and Sing, the hymn we sing, is an icon of American culture. It so well represents the yearnings of Afro-Americans that it was adopted by the NAACP and has been referred to as the "Black National Anthem." James Weldon Johnson wrote the words of the hymn; his brother J. Rosamond Johnson wrote the music. It was composed for the 1900 Lincoln Day celebration of the Johnsons' school in Florida.

National Public Radio offers a great presentation on this hymn on with links to its own audio presentation, various audio renderings of "Lift Every Voice" and numerous links to learn more about these most interesting and talented people from America's past. Most links primarily relate to James Weldon Johnson. A further perspective of the Johnsons' significant contributions to musical theater may be found at a jazz website , which especially details the long musical career of J. Rosamond Johnson. And here's one more rendition of Lift Every Voice and Sing -- in Real Audio format.
