Last evening we were at Roy Thompson Hall for Christmas with The Salvation Army. What a glorious night with wonderful presentations, spoken and musical. The guest vocalist, Marjorie Watson had a gorgeous voice and commanding presentation. She sang many times but it was this haunting song of Joy Webb that really stuck with me. I awoke this morning thinking…”if we needed you we need you now”.
A world filled with economic woes, war and civil unrest, children who are raising themselves because both their parents have died of AIDS, grievous greed ruling our world, people powerlessly lost in human trafficking…if we need you, we need you now.
