Down In The River To Pray December 26, 2011

Posted by Michael in Music.

Some great gospel music, sung by Alison Krauss and chorus, a capella.

I actually saw a baptismal ceremony much like this, white robes and full immersion where the pastor leans the penitent backwards and holds the nose, in the Jordan River near where it enters the Lake of Galilee.  There’s a kibbutz there that has made a business of hosting baptisms for Christian tour groups.  Not a normal sight for a Lutheran.  We just sprinkle.

Thanks to Doug for the link.

Alison Krauss has a voice like an angel.

That is a great song. Frankly the best part of “Oh Brother, Where Art Thou?” was the music & songs. I have the soundtrack on the pod.

Sorry to hear about the marxist part ;-/

The only reference to Marx and Alison Krauss is Richard Marx.

“We just sprinkle.”

And that’s why you’re going to Hell. 🙂

I’m just joking, but I know some hardcorps evangelicals that stop just short of that in conversation. We need to look more at what binds us and less at what seperates us as Christians.

AK can be a Marxist if she wants. She can afford it.
