I love the prayers of the people song that Cory plays at the YAV events. I believe Ben Johnson-Krase had a hand in it.
We are praying, oh we are praying.
We are praying, oh we are praying (or hungry, homeless, marching, singing, etc.)
We are man, woman
we are children
and oh – we are praying (or hungry, homeless, marching, singing, etc.)
Let the rains go, let the healing river flow,
let justice roll like water
Let the day begin when new life enters in
and let your Kingdom come.
I want to add a stanza to this, We are moving, oh we are moving!
This Saturday Mere and I vacate Kozy Shack and move to a new unnamed abode. Here lies me dilemma, we are moving into an unnamed home. A home is not a home until it is named. I have this thing where I name everything in my life. I am big on nicknames for cars, friends, places, drinks, food, and yes, homes.
So I’ m conducting a contest here. Y’all get to name the new place. Please leave your suggested names in the comments area and away we got into the beautiful process of democratic gratification. Please be kind, I do not want to live in a place called “Joe’s Crack Shack” or “Sid’s Weiner Factory.” I kind of like Valhalla myself.
Have at it.
